USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) administers then OCCSP using relevant sections of the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 and2 CFR 20 0. FSA awards NOCCSP funds to eligible State Agencies, which operate as a pass-through system, by accepting and approving their applications so they can issue reimbursements to certified organic operations for specific certifications costs.

In FY 2019, approximately $1 7. 4M is available for NOCCSP.

The FY 2019 Request for Applications outlines the eligibility and performancecriteria for State Agencies seeking NOCCSP funds.

Certified organic operations may request reimbursement for specific certification costs incurred from October 1, 2018, through September 30, 201 9. To receive NOCCSP cost share assistance, certified organic producers and handlers must contact their respective State Department of Agriculture.
