Project Description

Under the Strategic Land Protection, Conservation, and Enhancement of Priority Gulf Coast Landscapes in Mississippi (the Program), lands will be acquired from willing sellers, under a land acquisition plan, using fee simple acquisition and/or conservation easements. The lands to be purchased will be acquired at fair market value, using Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (UASFLA) standards. The expenditure of funds under the Program will occur based upon availability of potential prioritized acquisition parcels. Further, under this Program, the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), as the applicant, will lead and/or assist a lead federal agency in preparing the requisite National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis documentation for future land acquisition and related restoration and conservation activities proposed in the Mississippi Gulf Coast Region, coordinating with the RESTORE Council as needed.
