The Clean Ohio Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP) provides funding to assist landowners and communities in preserving Ohio's farmland, our most vital resource. The program purchases agricultural easements from landowners who volunteer to keep their land in agricultural production in perpetuity. In 2013, the program was changed to the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP) to reflect the increased role of the Ohio Department of Agriculture's (ODA) local sponsors in farmland preservation: counties, cities, townships, Soil and Water Conservation Districts and land trusts.

The Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation District is a local sponsor and we will be hosting an informational meeting on Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. for interested farm landowners. We encourage those interested to pre-register so that property maps can be generated before the meeting.

If you are interested, but unable to attend the informational meeting, or do not feel comfortable attending a meeting due to Covid-19, please contact the office for an individual appointment.

Additional information can be found at the Ohio Department of Agriculture Website.
