Owners of easily-flooded crop or woodlands in those counties may be eligible to receive compensation for up to $3895 per acre of crop land and up to $1948 per acre of woodland while still retaining ownership. Western KY Project Director Shelly Morris says this is part of a nationwide effort to restore wetland habitats along the Mississippi River.
