Description

 

The SALC Program provides Agricultural Land Conservation Strategy and Outcome grants to cities, counties and their partners to protect important agricultural land resources under threat of conversion. Incentivizing local governments towards developing local and regional land use policies and implementation activities that more fully integrate agricultural land conservation. The Strategies will ultimately result in zoning ordinances that effectively eliminate development on agricultural lands under threat of conversion, and/or they will result in the purchase of agricultural conservation easements, thereby avoiding conversion of strategic farmland and rangeland to urban and rural residential development. Funding for the design and implementation of local and regional agricultural land conservation Strategies will be limited to Agricultural Land Mitigation, Agricultural Conservation Easement Purchasing, Adoption of Urban Limit Line or Urban Growth Boundaries, Increase Zoning Minimum for Designated Strategic Agricultural Areas, and Adoption of an Agricultural Greenbelt and Implementation Agreements.
