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.
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is offering grants to support the development of new and existing cooperatives in Wisconsin, with a goal of fostering the success of current and future cooperatives by supporting planning and exploratory research in advance of making a large investment.
