Established in 2005, The Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program (TAEP) provides cost share dollars to agricultural producers for the purpose of making long-term investments in Tennessee farms and rural communities. This program allows producers to benefit from maximized profits, improved safety, and increased efficiency while positively impacting economies in rural communities.
In 2021, the TAEP application period is October 1-7, with notifications for approval being sent out in mid-December. TAEP purchases can be made starting October 1, 2021 until each category’s final reimbursement deadline, as determined by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. Reimbursements are based on expense amounts for eligible items in the program.
It is important to note that hay equipment and hay storage reimbursements are offered on a rotating basis with new hay equipment reimbursements being offered in the 2021-2022 program. For a complete list of programs and eligible purchases, click here.
To help you navigate this process, we will be providing applications at all four of our locations starting October 1. Our sales team will be happy to help with any questions you may have about the program or eligible equipment.
