Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Residential/Urban


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 (BMPs).

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.

Eligible Practices

Most practices are eligible for 75% cost-share and some practices provide a flat incentive payment up to the installation cost.

Residential Resources

The Headwaters SWCD hopes that these residential resources can provide some assistance to homeowners and local community members. One goal of the district is to increase educational outreach for the residential sectors of Augusta County and the Cities of Staunton and Waynesboro in hopes to increase conservation and pollution prevention awareness. Please let the district know if we can be of any assistance for questions or concerns you may have about local environmental issues in your community!
