NRCS Conservation Programs
Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program (FRPP) Maps
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 interests in land from landowners. USDA provides up to 50 percent of the
fair market easement value of the conservation easement.
