If you are a property owner in Fairfax County, City of Fairfax, or City of Alexandria, our Conservation Assistance Programs (CAP) may be for you! CAP is an urban cost-share program that provides financial and technical assistance to property owners installing eligible Best Management Practices (BMPs). These practices can be installed in areas of your property where problems like erosion, poor drainage, or poor vegetation occur.
The county also offers a cost-share program for energy efficiency retrofits for HOAs and Places of Worship in Fairfax County.
