Funding Conservation and Land Use Planning

In general, the largest expenditure by the state for land conservation is through the Land Preservation Tax Credit program. The tax credit program has an annual cap of $100 million. Besides the tax credit program, there is no singularly dedicated source of funds in Virginia for land conservation. The large sums used for purchases of land are usually through bond funds approved by the General Assembly. The Virginia Land Conservation Foundation also gets its funding from the general assembly through a specific distribution that ranges between $1 million to $15 million annually.
