Cycle VI and TVA Grant Recipients

August 2, 2013

The Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund awarded more than $1.9 million to help communities across the state protect farmland and promote agricultural enterprises.

"The trust fund was able to grant 22 projects funding this year, including 11 projects that were funded from the state's legal settlement with the Tennessee Valley Authority," Commissioner Steve Troxler said. "The conservation easements, agricultural projects and plans will help to solidify agriculture and agribusiness as North Carolina's top industry."
