Landowners with at least 40 acres can receive annual payments from the Department of Conservation by opening their land for public access recreational activities.
MDC created the Missouri Outdoor Recreational Access Program (MRAP) to increase outdoor recreational opportunities on private land. Under this program, MDC provides annual incentive payments to private landowners who open their land for public recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing.
