About Us

MACD is a state-wide non-profit association of conservation districts that exists to promote the work of the 14 Massachusetts Conservation Districts. The MACD Accelerated Conservation Planning Project is a partner funded project created to provide additional staffing resources to assist the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and MA Department of Agriculture in the delivery of US Congressional Farm Bill appropriations and MDAR farm preservation and viability grants. ACPP staff help provide administrative and technical conservation planning assistance to farmers and land owners under the direction of an NRCS District Conservationist in 5 field offices state wide; and also assist MA DAR program staff by providing map packets for applications to the APR program and assisting with applications to the Agricultural Environmental Enhancement Program and provide technical assistance for other DAR programs.
