Other Things to Note:

The Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program (FRWIP), the ministry’s flagship program for over 10 years, will continue to provide rebates to develop secure and sustainable water sources such as wells, dugouts and pipelines, in addition to well decommissioning.
Under Sustainable CAP, the program has been enhanced to include the development of small dams, and also includes funding for power installations. The biggest enhancement, and the most requested, is the increase to producer caps for rebates from $50,000 to $75,000 over the life of the program.
