BCLORP Program

WCSHC created a national recognition program to honor and celebrate the families who have passed down their legacy for 100 years. It's also a program designed to encourage black landowners to remain landowners and to encourage black non-landowners to become landowners. We are energetically recruiting for this program.

Heir's Property (Sustainable Forestry & African American Land Retention Network)

Over the last century, African American land loss has plummeted from 16 million to 4.7 million acres due to Heirs' property (NAL, USDA). WCSHC consistently works to resolve heir's property issues. We are an integral part of a network with a mission to "significantly increase the value of African American-owned forests, land retention, and asset development for Black families in the U.S. South."

WCSHC helps prevent further land loss in three ways: (1) by encouraging landowners to pay their property taxes on time; (2) by educating them on the importance of paying and how to pay; (3) and contacting landowners who are at risk of losing their land due to the failure to pay taxes between one three years of a missed payment.
