Charlottesville Conservation Assistance Program

Charlottesville Conservation Assistance ProgramCharlottesville Conservation Assistance Program (CCAP) is managed by the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District (TJSWCD), and is an extension of the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP), with additional support from the City of Charlottesville. The program provides financial, technical and educational assistance to property owners in the City who intend to install eligible stormwater control practices on their property. These practices can help address issues like erosion, poor drainage and failing vegetation, while helping to improve the appearance and function of yards and landscapes.

Funds are available for your improvement project. Most stormwater and conservation practices are eligible for a 75% financial reimbursement, and may lower your Stormwater Utility Fee. For more information on CCAP, and to learn about what may work for your property, contact the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District by visiting their website at or by phone at 434-975-0224, ext. 103.
