On Friday May 10 the North Carolina Association of Cooperative Extension Specialists (NCACES) awarded the Outstanding Subject Matter Program By A Team recognition to the heirs’ property collaboration between NC A&T and NC State. The collaboration – styled as Understanding Heirs’ Property at the Community Effort – is a USDA/RMA-funded program developed by the Southern Rural Development Center (SRDC) and Alcorn State University (Mississippi), and led by Dari Biswanath, Assistant Professor for Natural Resource Development with NC A&T University. Other team members are Robert Andrew Branan, JD with the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (NCSU), and Drs. Kurt Smith of NCSU Forestry Department and Noah Rannells of NC Farmlink.

To date the program has delivered workshops in Guilford, Stokes, Halifax, Caswell and Robeson Counties, with a final in-person workshop scheduled for Union County on July 17, followed by a series of webinars the following week. Through the journey, the team has learned much from participants on the challenges and limitations of fractionalized real property ownership. The program has placed NC A&T and NCSU at the forefront of addressing heirs’ property issues in North Carolina, if anything to develop a better understanding of the challenges in heirs property resolution, and what further education and resources are needed.
