Abstract Water

With the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development's (MDARD) proposed budget there are changes to the way the State of Michigan would provide assistance through MAEAP. 


The change would see our technicians no longer working for local Conservation Districts, but instead working for the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.  The proposed change would also lessen the total number of technicians from over 40 techs across the state to 24. 

So, the Michigan Association of Conservation Districts has put together a very short, confidential survey that we hope you will complete to hear your opinions on this proposed change to the MAEAP program.  Please select the button below to take you to the survey
