Pennsylvania’s Resource Enhancement and Protection Program (REAP) allows farmers and businesses to earn tradable tax credits for implementing management practices that will enhance production and protect natural resources. Join REAP program manager Joel Semke, Pasa’s Policy Strategist Sara Nicholas, and Pasa’s Education Director Franklin Egan to learn more about this valuable opportunity, as well as Lamont Garber from Stroud Water Research Center who started the program. .
Recent changes to REAP allows farmers to cover up to 90% of their costs for soil health projects and practices—potentially including soil health testing and consulting, cover crop seeds, reduced-tillage equipment, fencing, and riparian buffers.
Pasa is also working with food and ag businesses that can earn tax credits by sponsoring REAP soil health projects on Pennsylvania farms.
