Application deadline for fiscal year 2022 funding for the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), which includes special emphasis projects through its Wetland Reserve Enhancement Partnership (WREP) program is FEB. 11, 2022!!
Farmers can now apply for conservation easements in Tennessee. These easements provide financial assistance to farmers who voluntarily take their frequently flooded lands out of agricultural use. The program benefits nature by restoring these wetland areas to bottomland hardwood forest and reconnecting the floodplain throughout Tennessee.
