Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program
The Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program (FRPP) provides matching funds to
help purchase development rights to keep productive farm and ranchland in
agricultural uses. Working through existing programs, USDA partners with State,
tribal, or local governments and non-governmental organizations to acquire
conservation easements or other interests in land from landowners. USDA provides
up to 50 percent of the fair market easement value of the conservation easement.
