How AGWRAP Works

The Agricultural Water Resources Assistance Program (AgWRAP) is administered by the NC Soil and Water Conservation Commission through the Wayne County soil and water conservation district. The AgWRAP program is actively working towards reserving water resources in Wayne County.

Wayne Soil & Water AgWRAP program works with agricultural landowners and renters to:

  • Identify opportunities to increase water use efficiency, availability and storage
  • Implement best management practices (BMPs) to conserve and protect water resources
  • Increase water use efficiency
  • Increase water storage and availability for agricultural purposes


Landowners and renters of existing agricultural operations producing for more than 3 years are eligible to participate.

How To Apply

Visit the Wayne County Soil & Water Conservation office where technicians will help you submit an application and schedule a field visit to your agriculture operation that has the water resource concern. The application will then be ranked based on resource concerns identified in the county.


Applicants can be reimbursed for a percentage of a predetermined average cost for each installed Best Management Practice. Applicants are responsible for remaining percentage of the costs, which may include labor.

Some restrictions may apply depending on the type of operation, best Management Practice, or a relevant Soil & Water Conservation Commission Policy.

What To Bring When You Apply

  • Farm Service Agency (FSA) maps of the agriculture operation that has the water resource concern
