LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska is getting a $1.35 million federal grant to help expand hunters’ access to private land in the state.

State Conservationist Craig Derickson says the money will boost an existing program that helps provide access to private land for hunting, fishing and other recreation activities.

Landowners receive payments for allowing access to their lands and some liability protection.

More details about the program are available online at www.OutdoorNebraska.org .

The Nebraska grant was one of 15 the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently. The grants are worth $20 million.
