Texas Farm and Ranch Lands Conservation Program

The Texas farm and ranch Lands conservation Program is not a land trust.

The program was created to facilitate acquisitions of development rights on agricultural land. The General Land Office works to secure this funding through federal, state and private sources.

When funds are available, a request for applications will be posted on this page.

Any owner of farm or ranch acreage in Texas may apply for funding. Applications are made through the partnership of a landowner and a land trust chosen by the landowner.

Terms may be included in the easement to prohibit transfer to government ownership in the event that the land trust is unable to continue as the holder.
