JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks is accepting applications for cost-share funding for prescribed burning on private lands.

MDWFP says its partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the "Fire on the Forty" program reimburses funds for up to 50 percent of the costs private land owners have to pay to implement and perform a prescribed burn.

The funding will cover burns in 13 counties including Lowndes, Monroe, Noxubee and Prentiss counties.

Landowners must submit their application for the program before October 15 to be considered for funding.

All applications will be competitively ranked based on potential habitat benefits for wildlife.

To get application forms or for more information on the "Fire on the Forty" program, visit,  or call 601-432-2199.
