Land Trust Grants

State assistance payments are offered to land trusts for activities that will assist counties and municipalities with their agricultural and farmland protection efforts by disseminating information and providing technical assistance to county and municipal governments, owners of agricultural lands and other agricultural interests. Grants of up to $50,000 per year may be awarded to eligible organizations that have at least one active farmer on their board of directors. Furthermore, each organization must have its application endorsed by the Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board for the county or counties in which the funded activities will be implemented.

All future grant opportunities will be posted on the Grant Opportunities page here.
