(a)(1) State cost sharing in any project may be made available for up to 87 ½ percent of eligible costs, not to exceed a dollar amount of up to $200,000 as determined by a regulation adopted jointly by the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Environment.
(i) The Department of Agriculture, the soil conservation district, and a person have executed an agreement which, among other things, obligates the person to establish, construct, or install the best management practice in accordance with technical specifications, to maintain the best management practice for its expected life span, and to provide the required matching funds for the project;
(b) State cost sharing funds shall be disbursed, upon warrant of the Comptroller, only after the Department has determined that the best management practice has been established or in the case of equipment, structures, or similar items, that it has been received and properly installed. Payment may be made either to the person when the person has advanced money, or directly to a vendor or contractor in accordance with the written agreement required by this section, or supplemental written agreements with the vendor or contractor.
(c)(1) The Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Environment shall jointly promulgate rules and regulations to implement this subtitle. However, rules and regulations solely involving internal management of the cost sharing program need only be promulgated by the Secretary of Agriculture. The Department of Natural Resources shall be consulted prior to any rule making effort to assure coordination with its sediment control and related watershed programs.
