Dairy Distillers

The issue of funding for innovative dairy nutrient management technology demonstration projects is still being considered. Both House and Senate budgets generally reference one project in Eastern Washington and one in Western Washington. The Senate has $4 million for conservation commission for pilot/demonstration projects. The House has $2 million for pilots and an additional $2 million in “non-shellfish” cost share funding that is broadly available, potentially to help with cost share on innovative nutrient management demonstration projects and other projects such as VSP or general cost share for water quality projects.
