Agricultural Conservation Funding Opportunities – State and Federal Program
Since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, a flood of federal money has been made available through USDA for farmland conservation and stewardship. The State’s Farmland Preservation Program, and federal programs such as ACEP-ALE and WRE, can help pay for easement acquisitions, while other state and federal grant programs can pay for farming practices such as climate smart agriculture, soil health practices, and other practices to address natural resource concerns on agricultural land. As a local land trust, you can put this state and federal money to work in your community!
