Agricultural Nutrient Management Grants
Agricultural Nutrient Management (ANM) grants are to assist agricultural land and livestock owners with efforts to minimize adverse effects to waters of the state by better managing agricultural nutrients. The ANM grant program provides financial assistance with implementing Best Management Practices that prevent or mitigate water pollution.
The Division administers a grant program to assist agricultural land and livestock owners with efforts to minimize adverse effects to waters of the state by better managing agricultural nutrients including fertilizer, manure and compost.
The New Hampshire Legislature in 2001 enacted an Agricultural Nutrient Management (ANM) grant program in the Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food (NHDAMF). The program is presently funded in NHDAMF’s budget. The primary purpose of the ANM grants are to assist agricultural land and livestock owners with efforts to minimize adverse effects to waters of the state by better managing agricultural nutrients including commercial fertilizers, animal manures and agricultural composts.
