Virginia Land Conservation Foundation

In 1999, the General Assembly and the governor established the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation to help fund protection of the Old Dominion's wildlife, nature landscapes resources.

Grants are awarded to help fund the purchase of permanent conservation easements, open spaces and parklands, lands of historic or cultural significance, farmlands and forests, and natural areas. State agencies, local governments, public bodies and registered (tax-exempt) nonprofit groups are eligible to receive matching grants from the foundation.

The foundation manages the Virginia Land Conservation Fund, which gets funding from the state's annual budget.
