Eligible landowners may include homeowners, businesses, schools, parks, and publicly owned lands.
Interested landowners may apply to the Gaston 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% of the pre-established average cost of the BMP.
The Soil and Water Conservation Commission annually allocates 100% of available BMP funding for all approved CCAP BMPs through a competitive regional application process.
