Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program

The Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program (FRPP) provides matching funds to help purchase development rights to keep productive farm and ranchland in agricultural uses.  Working through existing programs, USDA partners with State, tribal, or local governments and non-governmental organizations to acquire conservation easements or other interest in land from landowners.  USDA provides up to 50 percent of the fair market easement value of the conservation easement.
