We would also like to remind residents that residences of Blair County are qualified, meeting certain requirements, to apply for the States Clean and Green Program. The Pennsylvania Farmland and Forest Land Assessment Act, Act 319 (as amended) is a state law, authorized by the state constitution, that allows qualifying land which is devoted to agricultural and forest land use, to be assessed at a value for that use rather than Fair Market Value. The intent of the program is to encourage property owners to retain their land in agricultural, open space, or forest land use, by providing some real estate tax relief. Additional Information about the program can be found on the Township’s website under the Land Preservation Tab. Information can also be found on the Blair County Government website and the Blair County Conservation District website.
