Farmland Preservation Program

Working Lands Initiative/Farmland Preservation Program Information Page

The Wisconsin Working Lands Initiative was passed as part of the state's 2009-2011 biennial budget, under Chapter 91 of the Wisconsin State Statutes.

The main components of the program include:

  • Expansion and modernization of the State's existing Farmland Preservation (FPP)Tax Credit Program;
  • Establishment of Agricultural Enterprise Areas (AEAs);
  • Development of a purchase of agriculture conservation easements program (PACE).  
The goal of the new WLI is to preserve significant agricultural areas throughout the state.
