What happens if a Conservation District does not meet their spending requirements for June of 2019?
Because the 5-year agreement between Conservation Districts (CDs)
and the State Conservation Commission (SCC) is ending on 6/30/19, funding from this old contract must e spent before 6/30/19. At their March meeting, the SCC approved the following actions for CDs who do not meet these spending requirements:
CDs with "old" money committed but not spent by 6/30/19: CD will have FY 2019-20 allocations will be reduced by amount of unspent funds.
CDs with "old" money not committed by 5/24/19: CD will not be eligible to receive an allocation for FY 2019-20.
- All funds withheld due to the above conditions will be redistributed to CDs who have met their spending requirements for FY 2019-20
- DnG and LVR spending requirements will be considered separate of each other (CD could meet both, one or the other, or neither)
- No funding will be "taken" from CD,
and CDs will be eligible for future allocations once future spending requirements have been satisfied.
