The Dare Soil & Water Conservation District has announced that it is now accepting applications for the Community Conservation Assistance Program (CCAP).
The CCAP is a voluntary, incentive-based program designed to improve water quality through the installation of various best management practices (BMPs) on urban, suburban and rural lands that are not directly involved with agricultural production.
BMPs include options such as marsh sills, riparian buffers, cisterns, rain gardens, permeable pavement, grassed swales and shoreline protection.
Applications will be accepted until September 8, 2021, and are ranked based on local water quality priorities. If selected, landowners may receive financial assistance up to 75 percent of the pre-established average cost of the BMP.
