Proposed Rule and Policy Change

RCO is seeking public comments on a proposed change to its compliance policy. RCO’s compliance policies are applied when an inconsistent or ineligible use is found on a grant-funded area.

Many RCO grants come with long-term obligations. Long-term obligations protect the public investment by ensuring the project area’s use and function remain the same as when the project was funded. Grant recipients must maintain the project area for its intended purpose for a specified period of time. The time varies by grant program and ranges from ten years to forever.

The proposed policy would provide flexibility for a grant recipient to resolve a non-compliant use by taking action that returns the project area to full compliance.
