Cost Share Program helps local landowners with projects
Each year counties set money aside to help landowners with projects to protect and enhance shorelines, improve habitat for wildlife, and create other environmental benefits. There is a Cost Share Program in each county which reimburses landowners for a portion of their expenses. The program typically reimburses landowners 50 percent of their expenses, with a cap in Oneida County of $8,000. Each year, if more projects come in than there is money allotted for, projects are ranked in several areas of importance. (Submitted photo)
