According to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, If you own riverside property, you could make an extra $500-$1,250 by increasing public access to fishing and paddling areas. This lease program allows you to lease part of your property to the state monthly, and can last up to two to three years which is based on funding.

If interested you want to apply by September 30th to receive preference in the 2021 funding cycle.

For more information visit, find the Doing Business with TPWD menu, and select Grants and Assistance . From there select the River Access and Conservation Area Program link.

I love to hear about your experience if you have or will utilize this program with TPWD. Please email me or leave a comment below and let me know how it worked out for you.
