March2Recovery Program for Tornado Victims

The Washington County Soil and Water Conservation District would like to announce they are now accepting applications from homeowners and landowners impacted by the March 2, 2012 tornado made possible through a grant from March2Recovery.  Qualifying participants must be in tornado damaged areas that experienced tree damage or erosion issues due to the tornado or its aftermath. Practices that are eligible for reimbursement include but are not limited to: tree plantings, vegetative planting/restoration, erosion control, stump removal, and debris removal.  Field visits will be completed to determine eligibility.  Practices completed must meet NRCS standards and specifications.  Funding is available for all eligible expenses and is a first come first served opportunity.

Those interested should contact Jessica Hoehn, Washington County Soil and Water Technician, at (812)883-3006 ext. 3 or to set up an appointment to meet at the Soil and Water Conservation District office at 801 Anson Street in Salem.
