GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Agricultural landowners and Indian tribes can apply for a Wetland Reserve Easement until Dec. 31 for fiscal year 2019 funding.
USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides financial and technical assistance for landowners to purchase and restore wetlands, protect wildlife habitat and recharge groundwater on their property.
Applications for easements located within areas designated for restoring longleaf pine forests and quail and gopher tortoise populations will be given extra points for selection.
