ACCP Fund and Surcharges

​​​​​​​​The Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program (ACCP) is funded through surcharges paid by licensees and others in the pesticide, fertilizer/soil and plant additive, and feed programs. Each year, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) determines whether to assess the surcharge based on the level of the ACCP fund on May 1 of each year. If the fund holds $1.5 million or more, the fee holiday continues. If it falls between $750,000 and $1.5 million, DATCP will assess half the surcharge. If it falls below $750,000, DATCP will assess the full surcharge.

On May 1, 2024, in accordance with SS 94.73(15), DATCP determined that the available balance in the ACCP fund was below $1,500,000 but above $750,000. As such, surcharges are now being assessed and p​esticides and fertilizers that are registered or purchased on or after June 1, 2024 will include the applicable ACCP fee. DATCP does not keep the entire license fee paid by these entities. Portions of the fees are distributed to other agencies and organizations.
