Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program - 2010

South Carolina Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program: 2010 Sign-up Information

State Conservationist Announces Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program Signup

The Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program (FRPP) is a voluntary Farm Bill program that helps farmers and ranchers keep their land in agriculture. Administered by the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), eligible entities are encouraged to submit applications for prioritized funding by February 1, 2010.

Eligible entities are State, Tribal, and local governments and non-government organizations that acquire conservation easements from landowners who agree not to convert their land to non-agricultural uses and to develop and implement a conservation plan for any highly erodible land. Land proposed for FRPP must meet one of two eligibility categories. This includes land that has at least fifty percent prime and unique farmland soils, and soils of Statewide and local importance, or contains historic or archeological resources.
