How are duplicates handled during the 2022 open application period?
  • Owner-occupied property applicants will have the highest priority within the open period.
  • Multiple applications from owner-occupied properties will be awarded to the property owner with less acreage or random computerized draw.
  • For non-owner-occupied properties, first come, first served.
  • Any approved applicant that does not pay the fees/purchase price, may lose eligibility to obtain the property and the next interested party will be made eligible.
  • Any application received after the open period for a property receiving multiple applications will be considered only if the first applicant is ineligible.
