During the spring of 1989, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a bill that gave life to the state's Resource Enhancement and Protection Act, commonly known to most people as REAP.

REAP funding is distributed for public land protection, historic preservation, cost-share programs with farmers that enhance water quality and soil conservation, community projects and conservation education.
