Public Comments Wanted on
Environmental Assessment Component of Grant
November 17, 2011
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is seeking public comments on an environmental assessment review the agency has drafted as part of its application for a federal grant.

The PFBC has applied for the grant through the Voluntary Public Access-Habitat Incentives Program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency. The program is designed to provide private landowners various incentives to open their land to public fishing and wildlife-related recreation and to improve conditions for wildlife and their habitats.

As part of its grant application, the PFBC must submit an environmental assessment. Comments on the draft assessment will be accepted through Dec. 19. The assessment can be reviewed online at or in person at the agency's headquarters in Harrisburg and its six region offices. Comments can be submitted to Jackie Kramer, PFBC statewide public access and lands conservation coordinator, at or by mail to Fish and Boat Commission, Attn: Jackie Kramer, P.O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000.

The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit our website at
