EQUIPMENT REVOLVING LOAN PROGRAM
Application for loans are submitted by the conservation district to the Kentucky Soil and Water Conservation Commission. Loans can be requested for up to two-thirds of the purchase price including sales tax. The one-third down payment can be satisfied by either trade-in or cash. The equipment then can be leased to a contractor in the area who agrees to conservation work.
Once loans are approved by the Kentucky Soil and Water Conservation Commission, the Division of Conservation sets up the terms of the loan, repayment schedule and reporting requirements in a contract with the conservation district.
Please contact the Daviess County Conservation District for more information and to obtain an application.
