Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund (KHLCF) Mission
Established in 1994, KHLCF provides funding for preserving and conserving natural areas that possess unique features such as:
- Areas that are a habitat for rare and endangered species.
- Areas important to migratory birds.
- Areas that perform important natural functions that are subject to alteration or loss.
- Areas to be preserved in their natural state for public use, outdoor recreation and education.
The Heritage Land Conservation Fund Board gives special consideration to funding agencies working together to meet these goals.
Revenue for the fund comes from the nature license plate, the state portion of the unmined minerals tax and environmental fines. The Environmental Education Council receives $150,000 of environmental fines each year for environmental education programs.
The location of the board meetings vary and will be listed on this website as soon as determined. Please contact the Heritage Land Conservation Fund office using the contact information below to confirm your attendance or to obtain more information.
