WI Farmland Preservation Planning Grants

Counties may apply for farmland preservation planning grants. A grant may reimburse up to 50% of a county’s cost to prepare a farmland preservation plan or update, up to a maximum grant of $30,000. ​In order to participate in the state farmland preservation program, a county must first have a state-certified farmland preservation plan. Landowners in participating counties may qualify for tax credits.


Eligible applicants are counties that meet requirements for plan certification, which include a clear articulation of county policies related to preserving farmland and promoting agricultural development, including development of enterprises related to agriculture.
