Lottery Registration for 2015 is Closed

Since 2013 the Commission has conducted an annual lottery registration process to fill available application slots in the coming year. The lottery registration was promoted heavily at Rally, online and through our eNewsletter. When the lottery registration opened on May 1, land trusts completed lottery registration forms throughout the month at their convenience for the available slots for 2015. The lottery registration closed at 5:00 pm Eastern on Friday, May 30. Thirty-seven land trusts successfully completed the lottery registration form for 2015; the lottery results will be announced by the end of June 2014.

Looking ahead, organizations may express their non-binding intent to register for future lottery registrations by completing a short online survey
