Community Conservation Assistance Program

Post Date:08/07/2017 4:44 p.m.

Dare Soil and Water Conservation District is seeking applicants for the Community Conservation Assistance Program.

The Dare Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for public and private landowners interested in implementing best management practices (BMPs) to decrease stormwater runoff and protect water quality. The Community Conservation Assistance Program (CCAP) is a voluntary, incentive-based program designed to improve water quality through the installation of various best management practices on urban, suburban and rural lands not directly involved with agriculture production. BMPs include options such as pet waste receptacles, cisterns, rain gardens, permeable pavement and similar practices. Stormwater runoff is the #1 pollutant of our coastal waters. Installation of BMPs reduces this pollutant from entering our sounds and ocean. Interested landowners may apply to their local soil and water conservation district for financial and technical assistance for the installation of BMPs to protect water quality. Applications are ranked based on local water quality priorities and, if eligible, a conservation plan is prepared. Landowners may receive financial assistance of up to 75 percent of the pre-established average cost of the BMP. DEADLINE for applications: August 25th COB 5:00pm
