Iowa Cost Share Programs

The Iowa Financial Incentive Program (IFIP) fund allocations are made to soil and water conservation districts, commissioners set
priorities for their use, and field office staff assure the technical quality of practices built. These practices are  subject to maintenance agreements.State cost share can be used for temporary or permanent practices.

The Water Quality Initiative (WQI) program provides assistance for nutrient reduction strategy and development projects in urban and rural settings.

The State Revolving Loan Fund is a new source of low-cost financing available to landowners. This opportunity is available specifically to assist and encourage landowners to address non-point source pollution of Iowa streams and lakes.
