To help defray the costs of control, it is a policy of the State Land Department to cost share up to 50% of the allowable expenses incurred in spraying grasslands owned by the school trusts. This is our "LONG FORM". If you are spraying small patches and are using less than a gallon of chemical during the year, maybe the "SHORT FORM" or " ONLINE FORM" is for you. Either form can be used to request reimbursement for your costs of control on the school trust which you lease.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have not received a cost share payment in the past (and because funds are limited), you must have the estimated costs approved by the Department of Trust Lands before spraying unless your estimated costs are $200 or less. If you do no follow recommended guidelines, your request for reimbursement will be denied. Denial for Reimbursement
When applying for cost share with the LONG FORM, please remember the following:
