  • Form 7: Cost-Share Adjustment Request

Every Soil and Water Conservation District manages the VCAP program differently. Due to the popularity of the program, our limited staff, and other commitments for the county and state, we can only review a few practices a year. Our application period is open from January 4 - April 30.

Applications for VCAP for 2020 is now closed for Prince William County residentsOur next application period will be on January 4, 2021. If you want a reminder of our next VCAP application period, please e-mail nicoleethier@pwswcd.org to sign up for our reminder mailing list.

For applications already submitted for this year

You will be contacted on whether or not your application has been accepted around June-July 2020. Projects that appear to have the most cost-effective solutions and/or a larger impact at solving water quality issues will be given priority for a site visit (not necessarily first come first serve). You do not need to fill out any of the forms below until after we meet with you.

Please note that we will only be able to choose a couple of applications for site visits and won't be able to see everyone who submits a form. We are thrilled to see so much interest in the VCAP program, but due to limited staff, time, and other obligations for the state and county, we cannot do site visits for everyone.

Important Note:

If you start/finish a VCAP practice before your application is approved, you may not be eligible for VCAP for that particular practice.

If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Slazinski at 571-379-7514, nicoleethier@pwswcd.org.
