Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) Rebate

The Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) Rebate Program makes tractor safety equipment affordable and simple to order.

For Fiscal Year 2023, we have approximately $130k for this and the Grain Storage Facility Safety Cost-Share programs. We will update the amount available throughout the year.


The program covers at least 70% of the cost of purchasing, shipping, and installing a rollover protection kit (roll bar and safety belt). Your costs are limited to no more than $500 per tractor.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Minnesota farmers and schools may apply.
  • Retrofits are for tractors built before 1987.
  • ROPS kits must be certified to the appropriate national or international standards.
    • Used, certified rollbars are only allowed if none are commercially available – contact the National ROPS Rebate Program before buying used equipment.
