ACEP-ALE Land Eligibility: Projects that Further a State or Local Policy

This workshop, co-hosted by American Farmland Trust (AFT) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) discussed the ACEP-ALE land eligibility category for projects that further a state or local policy. This eligibility category offers an alternative to more frequently used eligibility categories including prime, unique, state or locally important soils and grazing uses. The session includes a presentation by Matt Oliver, NRCS Easement Programs Division (EPD) staff who provide examples and identify NRCS considerations for eligibility determinations. This workshop is geared toward entities interested in participating in ACEP-ALE. Stacy Cibula from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board discussed their experience using the State and Local Policy Criterion.

This workshop is part of a series co-hosted by NRCS’ Easement Program Division and AFT’s Farmland Information Center and National Agricultural Land Network. These virtual workshops provide a deeper dive into several ACEP-ALE components. The workshops are a direct result of AFT’s ACEP-ALE Summit held in March of 2023 for state, local, and municipal government staff participating in the ACEP-ALE program.
