Agroforestry describes a set of land use practices that incorporate trees, shrubs, forages, crops and/or livestock designed in a way that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.

This publication is designed to help landowners and natural resource professionals find appropriate sources of funding for establishing and maintaining agroforestry practices.

The financial success of agroforestry practices does not depend on the availability of government funding programs, nor should it. However, the funding programs noted in this publication were developed as incentives for good stewardship and, when properly designed and managed, agroforestry is good stewardship. Although there are more funding programs than described in this document, the programs listed represent federal, state, and private sources with the greatest application to agroforestry.
