How to Apply

Application Deadline - May 1, 2020

All forms needed to apply for the OALP are available on our web site. There are potentially three types of forms that need to be submitted: Application Form, Spouse's Supporting Form, and Reference Forms. The preferred method for completing and submitting these forms is electronically. The forms have boxes to fill in which will expand as you type. Submitting them electronically also provides us an electronic signature when you send them by e-mail so that you do not have to print and sign the documents. The forms can also be printed, filled-in by hand, signed, and sent to us by surface mail.

For this program, applicants must be 25 years of age or older. The participation fee is $2,000. Full-time producers may qualify for a waiver of a portion of this fee.

There are three (3) possible steps to the application process:

  • 1. Application Form to be completed by program applicant.

    Please click here to open Program Participant Application Form

  • 2. Supporting Application Form to be completed by spouse (if applicable).

    Please click here to open Spouse Supporting Application Form

  • 3. Reference Forms (4) are required. If you are self-employed (production agriculture or agricultural-related business), one reference must be from a banker/lender or someone who is familiar with the financial aspects of your farming or business practice. If you are self-employed and have a business partner(s), at least one of your partners must also submit a reference. If you are employed at an agricultural-related business, one reference must be from your employer. Additional references are your choice. Reference forms are to be submitted to our office directly by the reference person. Again, our preferred method is for these forms to be completed electronically and submitted via e-mail by your reference. Alternatively, we suggest that you include a stamped envelope addressed to our office along with the form you give to your reference or provide our Fax number when you ask someone to complete the form.
