Corrected Department of Fish and Wildlife Weblink for New Winter Rice Habitat Program

After some technical difficulties with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s weblink to the main program document called the Public Solicitation Notice (PSN), the issues have now been resolved. The correct link is as follows: https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=164867&inline

The PSN provides the most detailed information about the program, including how to apply and how the applications will be prioritized for funding by the Department. The PSN and other information, including the application form, can also be accessed at the Department’s Private Lands Incentive Programs Webpage.

And as a final reminder, interested parties have an opportunity to attend a CRC Workshop, scheduled for next Monday, January 28 at the Colusa Casino starting at 10:00 am, to learn more about this new program. More details about the workshop, including how to RVSP, can be found in CRC’s Winter Rice Habitat Program Workshop Notice.
