How much land can you own and still receive gov. assistence for management?

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your question.  Unfortunately you would need to check the different government cost share programs to see if there are any acreage requirments.  Different agencies administer different programs and therefore there are often different eligibility criteria around acreage.  For federal programs, I would recommend contacting your local USDA service center because then you could talk to someone local who understands all the programs available to you and can answer eligibility questions.  We do have some information on our site about these programs (which program is right for me; the Farm Bill for forests) but I think contacting someone local would probably be the easiest way to find out.
