ONTARIO LAND TRUST ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (OLTAP) - UPDATE FOR 2013/14
Is your organization undertaking on-the-ground management actions this field season to benefit Species at Risk? If so, your project may be eligible for OLTAP support this year!
OLTA is thrilled to announce an important change to OLTAP in 2013/14. Thanks to additional funding from Environment Canada this year, OLTAP will be expanded to include reimbursement of costs incurred implementing direct management actions, identified in management plans, that benefit Species at Risk. Priorities and eligibility remain unchanged, but a new 'category' of project will be considered - direct management actions. Watch for more information and a call for proposals later in 2013. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the OLTA office.
Our sincere thanks to Environment Canada for its continued support of the land trust community's efforts to protect habitat for Species at Risk!
