Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Oregon government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and tribes for land conservation efforts. Funding is intended to protect agricultural land and prevent it from being used for non-agricultural purposes. Eligible lands for agricultural easements include cropland, rangeland, grassland, pastureland and nonindustrial private forest land.

NRCS provides financial assistance to eligible partners for purchasing Agricultural Land Easements (ALE) that protect the agricultural use and conservation values of eligible land. In the case of working farms, the program helps farmers and ranchers keep their land in agriculture. The program also protects grazing uses and related conservation values by conserving grassland, including rangeland, pastureland and shrubland. 

Under the ALE component, NRCS may contribute up to 50 percent of the fair market value of the agricultural land easement. Where NRCS determines that grasslands of special environmental significance will be protected, NRCS may contribute up to 75 percent of the fair market value of the agricultural land easement. The applicant will need to describe how the grassland offered for enrollment fits the definition of Grassland of Special Environmental Significance (ALE-GSS). Easement values for ALE are based on a fair market appraisal.

NRCS will prioritize applications that protect agricultural uses and related conservation values of the land and those that maximize the protection of contiguous acres devoted to agricultural use.
