The Dare Soil and Water Conservation District has announced that it is now accepting applications for the Community Conservation Assistance Program (CCAP). PACC is a voluntary incentive 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 related to agricultural production. BMPs include options such as marsh sills, riparian buffers, cisterns, rain gardens, permeable pavements, grass ditches, and shoreline protection.

Applications will be accepted until September 8, 2021 and are ranked according to local water quality priorities. If selected, landowners can receive financial assistance of up to 75% of the pre-established average cost of the BMP.
