Funds are available for conservation practices
The Comanche County Conservation District has announced that funds are available for cost-share assistance on selected conservation practices benefiting soil and water conservation. The state of Oklahoma has provided limited funds to the district to help landowners implement measures.
"The great advantage of the Conservation Cost-Share Program for Oklahoma is that it is a locally led program," said Trey Lam, executive director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission. "Each local conservation district, with input from local residents and agricultural producers, selects which of the available conservation practices to provide assistance based on their local natural resource issues."
Conservation practices available for cost-share assistance through the Comanche County Conservation District include brush management, forage and biomass planting, prescribed burning and firebreak.
An application and conservation plan are required to qualify for a cost-share payment. A participant must be a resident of Comanche County or own land in Comanche County. An eligible person shall file an application for allocated funds and a conservation plan approved by the district in which the eligible person's land is located.
