An Encroachment Partnership to Preserve Jobs, Military Bases and Conservation Lands in Eastern North Carolina

North Carolina Coastal Land Trust
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
New Hanover

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to support the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust’s efforts to work with the military to protect buffer areas around bases at Cherry Point and Camp Lejeune. Availability of land for use by the military is one of four criteria employed by the Department of Defense in determining the future of military installations during the BRAC process. This project is part of a land conservation effort initiated and partially funded by the military. Golden LEAF funds are expected to leverage $13 million in capital grants from other sources, preserve over 3,000 acres, and help protect the future of military bases in North Carolina.
