Troxler announces availability of farmland preservation grants;
application deadline is Dec. 15

RALEIGH — County governments and nonprofit groups pursuing farmland preservation projects can apply for funding assistance from the N.C. Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund, Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler announced.

Applications and guidelines for the 2012 funding cycle are available online at or by calling (919) 707-3071. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Dec. 15.

“The trust fund seeks to foster the growth, development and sustainability of family farms by supporting projects that encourage the preservation of qualifying agricultural, horticultural and forest lands,” Troxler said.

The trust fund has an appropriation of $1.7 million for each of the next two fiscal years.

Grants can be awarded to secure agricultural conservation easements on lands used for agricultural production; to support public and private enterprise programs that promote profitable and sustainable agricultural, horticultural and forestland activities; and for the development of agricultural plans.
