The Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP) is a voluntary program established for the purpose of providing the process and funding for identifying, acquiring, preserving and protecting endangered, environmentally-sensitive and significant lands in Hillsborough County. It is a citizen-based program with volunteer committees involved in every key aspect of the program. ELAPP is not a regulatory program; a property does not become environmentally sensitive because it’s in the ELAP Program, it is in the ELAP Program because of its environmental significance.
