MVC Caught Up in DNR Grant Review
Much of the work of one local group is on hold after a move in Madison this week. The DNR has temporarily curtailed conservation grants during a review of the state's land stewardship program as mandated by the Walker administration. Those are grants that are heavily used by the Mississippi Valley Conservancy and there's a number of projects in the works right now, says MVC director, Tim Jacobson that may require those grants. His group has used over six million dollars in state grants to protect from development over three thousand acres in the region.
