NRCS has announced the availability of funding to help landowners protect and restore wetlands in Massachusetts. The funding is provided through the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), created by the 2014 Farm Bill to protect critical water resources and wildlife habitat, and encourage private owners to maintain land for farming and ranching. Through the voluntary sale of an easement, landowners limit future development to protect these key resources.

Interested landowners should apply by Friday, March 2, 2018. Contact your local USDA Service Center for more information. To learn about ACEP and other technical and financial assistance available through NRCS, visit www.ma.nrcs.usda.gov.
