Indiana Land Trust Advancement Program

This 3-year program in Indiana provides the state's land trusts with training, organizational growth services, and technical assistance to help them upgrade their practices, develop sustainable operational and financial structures, and prepare for accreditation review.

The goals for this three-year initiative are to:

  • Strengthen land trust capacity to accelerate the pace of land conservation and ensure its permanence

  • Strengthen the role of land trusts as regional leaders in conservation across Indiana

  • Prepare Indiana land trusts for accreditation review

  • Promote awareness of land trusts and private land conservation among elected officials, private land owners, and local communities

Program Description


In addition, the Alliance identified critical needs by conducting a Needs Assessment Survey, and convening focus groups and interviews with land trusts in various regions of the State. We used the information gained from the needs assessment to help structure services so that they are relevant and timely to the needs of the land trust community in Indiana.
