Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP)
The Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP) is an urban cost-share program that provides financial incentives and technical and educational assistance to property owners installing eligible Best Management Practices (BMP’s) in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Watershed. These practices can be installed in areas of your yard where problems like erosion, poor drainage, or poor vegetation occur. Qualified sites shall be used for residential, commercial, or recreational purposes with a proposed practice that addresses a need.
The overall program goal is to encourage homeowners, homeowner associations, businesses, municipalities, churches, etc., to install stormwater retrofits that will provide nutrient and/or sediment reductions that can be credited toward accomplishing Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) goals.
