LePage witholds funds for Land for Maine's Future

Press Herald - Gov. Paul LePage has frozen operational spending within Land for Maine’s Future as his administration prepares to release a report assessing the program that distributes funds for conservation projects.

Approximately 30 applicants who are seeking funds received a letter this month from Land for Maine’s Future Director Sarah Demers informing them that funds for legal costs and other expenses associated with conservation projects are unavailable.

“This letter is to inform you that at this time LMF funds are not available for acquisitions and legal review of due diligence items necessary to complete your project,” the letter reads.
