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. There is currently a fee holiday, meaning that licensees do not have to pay the surcharge. 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.
DATCP does not keep the entire license fee paid by these entities. Portions of the fees are distributed to other agencies and organizations.
