Eligibility Criteria

Eligible Applicants

Applicants must:

  • Have an Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) that is less than 5 years old and reflects the current farm or ranch operation. The EFP must be renewed if it is more than 5 years old, or if there have been changes made to the farm or ranch operation that could have impacted the environmental risk. This does not imply the farm operation will be able to access BMP program dollars nor does it imply the farm cap will be reset.
  • The farm or ranch operation must be in British Columbia and have valid “Farm Class” land as designated by the BC Assessment Authority or be a First Nations agricultural operation with designated authority to use the land.
  • The applicant must have a valid business (GST) number.
  • Access to certain BMPs require additional assessments, planning or design that must completed prior to approval (e.g., Nutrient or Riparian Management Plans). These BMPs are “linked”, and the planning BMP must be completed and submitted prior to beginning a project. Concurrency of planning and/or technical assessment may be allowed for projects that are not contingent on a final design for the project construction activity or may be waived at the discretion of the Program Manager. All Planning BMPs require prior approval.

FAQ

Would underground reservoirs qualify under code 0903?2024-04-09T10:49:17-07:00

If the infrastructure is included in the water license and there is a technical design with the application then the reservoir would qualify

Would sap flow sensors qualify under BMP category 1802?2024-04-09T10:48:27-07:00

Yes, as sap sensors are another monitor that can aid in irrigation scheduling

Would fencing be a part of eligible costs if it is included to protect the irrigation system from cattle/animals?2024-04-09T14:32:03-07:00

If this is for 1804, it’s about the irrigation system, and fencing isn’t part of the irrigation equipment. 0903 (dams) and 0904 (dugouts) include fencing as eligible costs due to safety issues, e.g., to prevent people/animals from falling into the dam/dugouts.

Fencing is generally part of building the dam/dugout (similar to building fencing around your house or building railings for your balcony. However, fencing is not required (and is unconventional) for irrigation systems (1804) or rainwater harvesting (0905).

If fencing is identified as an action item in your EFP plan, IAF recommends applying for funding under BMP codes 1003, 1005, or 2209.

Will IAF consider multi-year BMP Projects for funding approval?2024-02-05T14:48:45-08:00

IAF will consider multi-year projects for the current intakes, however these will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Applications that intend to span more than one fiscal year must indicate the work that will occur in each project year and the budget associated with that work. It should be noted that projects that span more than one fiscal year will still only be entitled to the same Maximum Total Funding Amount for the one Fiscal Year (for example, for Riparian and Grazing Projects, the maximum total funding amount would remain $70,000). Requests for consideration must include justification for extending the project beyond the standard project completion timeline. 

When will payment(s) be received?2024-02-05T14:48:10-08:00

IAF provides payments by EFT (direct deposit). To get your EFT information set up to ensure timely delivery of your payment(s) please follow the directions provided here to update your client portal.

Payments will be made based on actual expenses reported, and payments will be made in arrears. All projects require an approved report to receive payment.

When can I expect to hear back about a funding decision?2024-02-05T14:47:42-08:00

Funding decisions for complete applications will be communicated to applicants within 8 weeks of the program’s close or the application submission if in the case of an ongoing intake window.

IAF will return incomplete applications to applicants via the IAF Client Portal for resubmission with missing information/clarifications requested. IAF will complete adjudication and notification of funding decisions within eight weeks of application resubmission.

What proof of equipment (or similar) purchase do you require?2024-02-05T14:46:49-08:00

When reporting, you may be asked to submit an image of the equipment (or similar) serial number; this serial number must match the serial number on the submitted invoice.

What is the difference between the application and submission window?2024-02-05T14:51:19-08:00

The Beneficial Management Practices (BMP) Program is a first-come, first-serve program. For the 2024 application window, we heard feedback that applicants wanted to have time to review the application before submissions start to see the specific application questions and requirements and to start preparing their application before submissions begin.

The application window is the two-week period where an applicant is able to view, draft, and save their application. The submission window is the 6-day period where an applicant can submit their application.

What if my project requires a permit?2024-02-05T14:47:15-08:00

Please provide the status of the permit and any supporting documentation at the time of application.

What counts as proof of water license?2024-04-17T08:36:18-07:00

If you are in an irrigation district an email from the Water Authority or a water bill would be accepted as proof of license. Copies of personal water licenses can be found via BC’s Ministry of Water, Land, and Resource Stewardship’s lookup tool.

What are the steps I need to follow to be able to apply for a WI BMP?2024-04-10T14:57:49-07:00

Before you apply to the BMP program, you will first need to complete an Environmental Farm Plan (EFP). Once your EFP has been completed you are eligible to apply to all BMP categories. Before you start your application, see project details to determine if the code you hope to apply to has any prerequisites. These prerequisites need to be completed prior to the submission of your Water Infrastructure application. If you submitted a BMP Plans and Designs application or plan to in hopes of completing a prerequisite before the BMP Water Infrastructure deadline, please note that it may take up to 8 weeks for you to hear back from us on your Plans and Designs application. IAF recommends ensuring you have all your pre-requisites completed before applying to the Water Infrastructure program. See here for more information on the application process.

My total project costs are more than the funding cap for the program, what do I do?2024-02-05T14:49:59-08:00

Please only submit costs up to the cap of the category/project. If you exceed the program/project cap on your application, you will receive an error and will need to adjust your application details before you are able to submit.

Is GST an eligible cost as part of my project expenses?2024-02-05T14:45:45-08:00

No, GST is not eligible for reimbursement.

I just applied for a Planning, Technical Assessments, and Engineered Designs for an Engineering or technical design/assessment—water and riparian (1102), Irrigation System Assessment (2901), or Water Management Plan (2902). Will I be able to apply for the April 2024 BMP: Water Infrastructure intake for BMPs that require these plans as prerequisites?2024-04-04T14:48:07-07:00

It’s unlikely that the recently applied-for BMP: P&D project will be approved and completed prior to the BMP Water Infrastructure in April 2024. You will, therefore, not be able to use these plans to complete the pre-requisite requirements for any projects for this intake, and you are not able to apply until these projects are complete (concurrent applications are not permitted). 

I cannot submit my application due to a ‘total funding requested’ error, how do I submit?2024-02-05T14:49:26-08:00

If you receive an error similar to the error below, please adjust your project costs to be below or at the maximum funding amount. We acknowledge that projects may cost more to complete – but the request may not exceed the amount due to system limitations.

How long does it take to register my organization? Is this included in the deadline?2024-02-05T14:45:13-08:00

Your organization must register through the IAF Client Portal to apply to IAF programs. Please note, if you have not already registered, this process can take up to 2 business days and must be completed before the application deadline.

How long can I take to complete my project?2024-02-05T14:46:25-08:00

The completion date of your project is dependent on the BMP category you apply for, as well as the project start date. Please see Important Dates for details.

How do I get a water license? 2024-04-10T12:11:54-07:00
Does the program cover costs related to purchasing a solar water system from a dugout?2024-04-09T10:47:55-07:00

Solar for pumping of water in dugouts is fine even if not for livestock.

Do I need a water license?2024-04-10T12:09:26-07:00

A water license needs to be determined by the applicant; visit https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/environment/air-land-water/water/water-licensing-rights/water-licences-approvals to determine if you require one.

Do I need a plan/design to complete my WI project? Can I submit a BMP plans and designs application before applying to the WI program?2024-04-10T12:08:55-07:00

If you submitted a BMP Plans and Designs application or plan to submit one before the BMP Water Infrastructure deadline, please note that it may take up to 8 weeks for you to hear back from us on your Plans and Designs application, which is a very tight timeline to have your plan approved by IAF and completed by your contractor. IAF recommends ensuring you have all your pre-requisites completed prior to applying to the Water Infrastructure program.

Do I have to complete the SCAP Demographic Data form again if I’ve applied for one or more SCAP programs/projects?2024-02-27T08:56:31-08:00

No, provided the last time you completed the form was in the same fiscal year, you can input the confirmation number provided by the Ministry into another application form.

If you last completed the form a year or more ago, please complete a new Demographic Data Collection Survey for IAF Applicants.

Can the irrigation design for 1804 be prepared by a a non-IIABC-certified person (like an irrigation supplier) and later signed off/stamped by an IIABC-certified person?2024-04-04T14:55:02-07:00

A Certified Irrigation Designer (CID) (aka an IIABC-certified person) would have to do the plan/assessment, and they cannot stamp work that is done by non-CID.

Can I change the BMP category on my application after I have started?2024-02-05T14:50:26-08:00

Yes. However, please remove all numbers entered in the previously chosen BMP practice code. If you do not remove the previously entered numbers, they will affect the total funding requested calculation at the end of your application.

Are pumps eligible to be included in code 1804?2024-04-08T08:33:37-07:00

If the pump is included in the irrigation system design by the CID, then it would be eligible for funding.
