Conservation Funding Opportunities

There are a variety of funding opportunities available for non-federal landowners in implementing conservation measures on their property. For information about opportunities in Washington, see the Restoration and Recovery Funding Fact Sheet (pdf).

Conservation Programs for Private Landowners

Our nation’s private landowners are critical to the success of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Service’s mission to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. The Service has many tools and programs for conservation of fish, wildlife and plants on private lands. 

Projects may consist of restoration, recovery, assessment, or research. Priority will, however, be placed on “on-the-ground” projects that restore or enhance fish and wildlife and/or their habitats, with emphasis placed on well-planned projects benefiting federally listed/candidate species and their habitats or improving listed species numbers. Additional emphasis will be placed on projects that achieve a published recovery goal.
