Interested landowners are required to complete a Pre-Application Form to be considered in Dakota County Board-approved application rounds. Although applications are accepted year-round, annual application deadline dates are approved by the County Board.
County staff determines initial eligibility of projects. Staff will contact applicants once a determination is made. If a project is eligible, a meeting is scheduled to discuss the project, describe the prioritization criteria, and conduct a preliminary property assessment.
After all preliminary information is recorded, eligible project applicants meet with County staff, and then are required to complete a more detailed Final Application Form to be considered for recommendation to the County Board. See a step-by-step process of submitting an application.
The deadline to submit 2018 final applications was Oct. 27, 2016.
