Community Conservation Assistance Program (CCAP)


CCAP is a voluntary, incentive-based cost share program designed to improve water quality through the installation of various best management practices (BMPs) on urban, suburban and rural lands not directly involved with agriculture production.

Eligible landowners may include homeowners, businesses, schools, parks and publicly owned lands.


Interested landowners may apply at the Wake Soil and Water Conservation District for financial and technical assistance for the installation of BMPs to protect water quality. Applications are ranked based on water quality priorities and, if eligible, can be submitted for a funding request. Landowners may receive financial assistance of up to 75 percent of the pre-established average cost of the BMP from the CCAP regional application process for the Piedmont.
