Administrative Guidance Manual

New DGLVR Administrative Manual Effective 7/1/19

At its 5/14 meeting, The State Conservation Commission adopted revisions to the administrative manual.  Revisions are effective 7/1/19 and contracts signed before that date should follow old manual and policies.  Contracts signed on or after 7/1/19 should follow the new manual, policies, and forms.  This section is provided so Conservation Districts can prepare for the change.  Revisions to the Contract and Completion report will be incorporated into the GIS tracking system and made available on 7/1/19.

The 2017 version of the manual, available below, will be used until 7/1/19.
