Notice of Selection Guidelines
In order to remain compliant with both the Ohio Administrative Code and the ODA-Local Sponsor LAEPP Cooperative Agreement, all approved landowner applicants must receive a Notice of Selection indicating that they have been approved for funding. However, those local sponsors also applying to the USDA-NRCS Agricultural Conservation Easement Program – Agricultural Land Easement (ACEP-ALE) program may not yet know the amount of funding available for their easement purchases.
This required step has a specific timeline for completion. Review corresponding "Process Steps (what to do next?)" for additional information; each funding round has its own set of "Process Steps" and deadlines.
