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


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 45% of available BMP funding for district allocations for all approved AgWRAP BMPs.  The remaining 55% will be allocated for new ponds and pond repair/retrofits applications through a competitive regional application process.  For more information, please refer to the PY2015 AgWRAP Detailed Implementation Plan.
