What funds are available for conserving my land?

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.

How do I apply for the income tax credits?

Read about the tax credit program, and download application materials.

How is the GLCP different from the ten-year CUVA program?

The GLCP works with landowners to permanently protect conservation lands from development, while the CUVA and FLPA programs do not require permanent restrictions.
