The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) announced that 17 land trusts, counties and local Soil and Water Conservation Districts will receive funding to help preserve farmland around the state. These organizations will receive allocations from the Clean Ohio Fund to manage the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP). The projected LAEPP award for Clark and Greene counties is $550,643, and the potential FRPP (Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program) for these counties is $1,651,930! LAEPP sponsor organizations will accept online applications from Ohio landowners who are interested in selling an agricultural easement to ODA beginning January 15th, 2014. The local sponsors have been certified to accept applications from landowners in 46 counties. A total of $6 million will be made available in this funding round. It is estimated this can leverage up to $18 million from the FRPP for a total of $24 million.
