Working Lands and Riparian Corridors: Land Trust Capacity and Project Development

Nearly $950,000 was awarded to 14 land trusts to build capacity to initiate and conduct agricultural conservation activities in their service areas.  These projects will increase the pace and scale of agricultural land conservation throughout the state and support climate adaptation and resilience via agricultural lands conservation. 

Grantees will use this funding to integrate agricultural land conservation and climate adaptation goals into their conservation strategies, as well as develop agricultural land conservation projects that provide climate adaptation or resilience benefits to the state. ​
