The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) announces the extension of the Open Application Period until February 1, 2013 for the Landowner Incentive Program: Grassland Protection and Management.

Private landowners will be able to apply for technical guidance and financial incentives for the protection of at-risk grassland species on their land. Eligibility is limited to privately-owned land within portions of following counties: Allegany, Cayuga, Chemung, Clinton, Cortland, Erie, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Genesee, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Livingston, Madison, Monroe, Montgomery, Niagara, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Orleans, Otsego, Saratoga, Schoharie, Schuyler, Seneca, St. Lawrence, Steuben, Suffolk, Tompkins, Ulster, Washington, Warren, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates.

Eligible landowners will compete for funding, set at $110 or $113 per acre per year to conduct the prescribed grassland management. The higher rate will be applied for parcels of land located within 25 miles of large urban areas (population of more than 100,000), reflecting higher soil rental rates near population centers. Parcel size must be twenty-five acres or more of contiguous grassland or shrubland that landowners are willing to convert to grassland.

The deadline for pre-application submission has been extended to February 1, 2013.
