The Hawai’i Department of Agriculture (HDOA) Plant Industry Division is accepting applications for the Compost Reimbursement Program for Fiscal Year 2024, which may reimburse agricultural producers (including farming and landscaping operations) for the cost of purchasing compost, including transportation costs.

Act 164 was passed by the State Legislature during the 2023 legislative session and Gov. Josh Green released funds totaling $450,000 on September 14, 2023.  Farming operations may apply for reimbursement of up to 50 percent of cost of compost purchased between July 1, 2023 and May 1, 2024.  Reimbursements under this program are not to exceed $50,000 per qualified purchaser. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2024.
