North Carolina Community Conservation Assistance Program
CCAP is a voluntary, incentive-based program designed to improve water quality through the installation of various best management practices (BMPs) on urban, suburban and rural lands not directly involved with agriculture production.
Who is eligible?
Eligible landowners may include homeowners, businesses, schools, parks and publicly owned lands.  

Why is this program important?
How rapid urbanization affects water quality becomes important as North Carolina's land use continues to change.  CCAP can help educate landowners on water quality, stormwater management and retrofit practices to treat stormwater runoff. 

How does CCAP work?
Interested landowners may apply to their local soil and water conservation district for financial and technical assistance for the installation of BMPs to protect water quality. Applications are ranked based on local water quality priorities and, if eligible, a conservation plan is prepared. Landowners may receive financial assistance of up to 75 percent of the pre-esablished average cost of the BMP.
