LARE applicants receive technical and financial assistance for qualifying projects, which include logjam removal, streambank stabilization, and wetland creation. Applications must be completed and submitted electronically. To view a full list of qualifying project types, along with additional information about LARE, see lare.dnr.IN.gov.
