Written by Hillsboro Free Press Tuesday, 17 April 2007 13:02The Chase County Conservation District is conducting a signup through May 31 to accept requests for state cost-share assistance.
The conservation district administers state cost-share programs that provide landowners financial assistance to implement approved conservation practices.
Following the signup deadline, the Chase County Conservation District will be developing the county program based on conservation needs being assessed, in part, by the project proposals.
Projects will be approved by the conservation district on a priority bases. The signup does not guarantee approval or cost-share assistance.
Applications approval by the Chase County Conservation District and State Conservation Commission (SCC) may be implemented after July 1.
The amount of program funds allocated to the conservation district is currently unknown because appropriations for SCC programs have yet to be approved by the legislature.
The conservation district will be notified in May of its allocation.
Appropriations for SCC cost-share programs are funded by the State Water Plan Fund.
If you have questions or would like to request cost-share assistance, come by the Chase County Conservation District office at 219 Broadway, Cottonwood Falls, or call 620-273-6462 before the May 31 deadline.
