New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets Farmland Protection Implementation Grant Round is anticipated in Spring 2020. The Farmland Protection Program protects agricultural land through Conservation Easements with the Purchase of Development Rights (PDR). Conservation Easements allow landowners to prevent productive farmland from being lost to development, receive payment for their land’s development value, while still maintaining ownership of their land.
