Grants of up to $50,000 to New York land trusts to assist municipalities and counties with farmland and agricultural protection activities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take five to ten business days to complete. Funding is intended to support local agricultural and farmland protection goals by informing owners of viable agricultural land of the mechanisms and programs available to protect their lands from conversion to non-farm uses.
Projects will consist of outreach activities intended to reach the owners of viable agricultural land utilizing an inventory of viable agricultural lands and a screening process to identify subsets of landowners to focus on for such outreach activities
Eligible activities will focus on the utilization and conservation of agricultural lands using the following required project elements:
Projects must be conducted over a proposed study area wholly contained within New York State. This study area must be clearly identified on a NYS municipal base map submitted in the proposal.
Projects must receive a written endorsement from the County Agricultural Farmland Protection Board (AFPB). If a study area covers multiple counties each County AFPB must endorse the project.
Prior to conducting outreach activities applicants must either agree to develop or already have (1) an inventory of viable agricultural lands; and (2) a screening process that will result in the identification of subsets of landowners to be targeted for outreach activities.
Eligible outreach activities can be found at https://www.agriculture.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2019/11/rfp0213_landaccessoutreachactivities_requestforproposals.pdf#page=5.
