Cost Share Programs - Agricultural Water Resources Assistance Program (AgWRAP)

AgWRAP Logo

The Agricultural Water Resources Assistance Program (AgWRAP) was authorized through Session Law 2011-145.  The program is administered by the NC Soil and Water Conservation Commission through local soil and water conservation districts. 

The purposes of the AgWRAP are to:

  • Identify opportunities to increase water use efficiency, availability and storage
  • Implement best management practices (BMPs) to conserve and protect water resources
  • Increase water use efficiency
  • Increase water storage and availability for agricultural purposes

The Soil and Water Conservation Commission alloacted 60% of available BMP funding for district allocations for all approved AgWRAP BMPs.  The remaining 40% will be allocated for new ponds, pond repair/retrofits, water collection and reuse systems, conservation irrigation conversions, micro-irrigation systems, and baseflow interceptors (streamside pickups) applications through a competitive regional application process.  For more information, please refer to the FY2017 AgWRAP Detailed Implementation Plan.
