Accreditation Fees


The accreditation fee structure is designed to provide a fair and affordable opportunity for land trusts of all sizes to participate in the accreditation program and to support a program that builds strong land trusts, fosters public trust in land conservation and helps ensure the permanence of land conservation. The accreditation fee consists of a registration fee and an application fee.

Fees for an application round are typically announced in the spring of the previous year. For information on accreditation fees, please select the accreditation fee schedule below for the year in which you plan to apply.
