Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP)

The Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) is a voluntary program. We recognize and reward top stewards of the land. This is a statewide program delivered by conservation districts, local leaders you know. MAEAP is open to any Michigan farmer.

There are four categories of recognition:

  • Cropping
  • Livestock
  • Farmstead
  • Forest, Wetlands, and Habitat

MAEAP is free and is a good fit for both large and small farms. Everything we learn about your farm is 100% confidential. This is guaranteed by state law.

You can earn:

  • Recognition as a top steward in the community
  • Regulatory assurances
  • Increased access to cost share and technical assistance
  • An enduring sense of accomplishment and pride

We promise:

  • The program is 100% confidential, guaranteed by state law
  • We will treat you and your farm with respect
  • We will help you with the paperwork and process
  • We will help you leave a legacy for your children
