Installment Purchase Program

About the Program
In 2002, Frederick County began the Installment Purchase Program (IPP), for purchasing easements through the use of Installment Purchase Agreements. This agreement pays the farmer tax-free interest over a period of 10-20 years with a balloon lump sum principle payment at the end of the term. Almost 17,000 acres have been preserved through the IPP Program.
