* As described in the RP/SEA for the previous round (Round 3) of the Restoration Program, land acquisition projects have unique sensitivities related to confidentiality, and the MA SubCouncil solicited public comment on the process to be used to solicit and evaluate land acquisition applications prior to initiating Round 3 of the Restoration Program. In Round 4, similar to Round 3, land acquisition project applications and specific identifying information is withheld as land transaction negotiations may be adversely affected by public disclosure of project- or parcel-specific information. Accordingly, land acquisition applications are identified only by generic identifier (e.g., Land Acquisition Project #1). Applications for land acquisition projects will be made publicly available after Round 4 funding has been awarded and funded land acquisition projects have closed.
