The Partnership for Manageable Growth (PMG) helps protect important agricultural and open space resources. The program provides a locally funded match for land preservation purchase (up to 50% of the total project cost). Since its inception, and including acreage from pending projects, the program has helped protect over 5,000 acres of farmland and open space in Dutchess County.
In anticipation of future funding, we are soliciting potential Partnership for Manageable Growth (PMG) Program projects. We are only seeking applications for Open Space and Farmland Protection Grants or Water and Wastewater Facility Planning and Development Grants (Construction only) in 2020.
Applications must be submitted on or before 4:00pm Friday, December 6, 2019.
