Notice of Intent/Discharge Cost-Share Grants

The DNR and the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) offer cost-share funding grants to governmental units working with owners and operators of livestock operations to meet pollution control requirements imposed by the DNR.

Who can apply

Eligible applicants

Eligible applicants are governmental units working with livestock operation owners or operators with pollution discharge concerns resulting in the issuance of a Notice of Discharge (NOD) or a Notice of Intent to Issue a Notice of Discharge (NOI) from DNR.


Eligible projects

Eligible projects are those designed to implement best management practices (BMPs) for improving water quality impaired by pollution discharges at an animal feeding operation satisfying the conditions of the NOD or NOI.

Ineligible projects

Ineligible projects are those that address previously in-compliance facilities, were included in a previous offer of cost-sharing, cover routine maintenance and operation of BMPs, or cover a significant expansion of the livestock operation.



Completed applications can be submitted electronically continuously throughout the calendar year to the DNR Regional Nonpoint Source Coordinator. Applications will be bundled and reviewed jointly by DNR and DATCP at two or three scheduled times each calendar year depending on available funding:

  • April 15
  • June 15
  • August 15

An additional October 15 submittal and review may be established if funds are available. Applicants will be contacted by DNR and DATCP within three weeks of each scheduled review cycle to further review submitted projects. Unfunded applications remain in consideration for up to one year.
