The Georgia Land Conservation Program (GLCP) offers financing to local governments, state agencies and non-profits to permanently conserve Georgia's land resources and protect water quality throughout the state. The GLCP offers flexible financing options, including grants to state agencies, low interest loans and tax incentives to promote these conservation initiatives.
Funds for conservation land in Georgia most commonly take the form of income tax credits. Depending on the location of the property, some funds may be available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service or Fish & Wildlife Service, and through local government greenspace or other local conservation programs.
The GLCP works with landowners to permanently protect conservation lands from development, while the CUVA and FLPA programs do not require permanent restrictions.
