CEAP Guidelines

The Conservation Easement Assistance Program provides small grants to conservation organizations to help cover the costs of:

  • Completing conservation as well as trail and fishing access easements
  • Amending and restating older easement documents
  • Establishing or updating baseline documentation
  • Installing signs on eased properties.

The program seeks to:

  • Increase the quantity of easements completed and special places protected; and
  • Increase the quality and long-term viability of easements.

To accomplish this, the program requires that organizations do the job right and provides the financial means to do so.
