Grants to California entities to acquire land for approved species recovery plans. Funding is intended to support the purchase of land from willing sellers to protect the habitat of threatened and endangered species of animals, plants, and fish. Proposals will be considered for new or ongoing work.
The Recovery Land Acquisition Grant program was designed to promote species recovery through the permanent protection of specific parcels of land in support of approved or draft recovery plans, or similar species conservation documents. Loss of habitat is the primary threat to most listed species and land acquisition is often the most immediate, effective, and efficient means of protecting habitat necessary for the recovery of listed species. Land acquisition projects will conserve listed species habitat in perpetuity through fee simple acquisition or the acquisition of permanent conservation easements.
To be considered for funding through this opportunity, the land proposed for acquisition must benefit at least one listed species for which (1) habitat loss is identified as a threat; and (2) habitat protection is identified as a priority recovery action in the species’ most recently approved recovery planning document. Further, all applications must state a commitment to funding for, and implementation of, management of the land in perpetuity, consistent with the conservation needs of the species.
While all projects must be consistent with the conservation objectives outlined in a species’ most recently approved recovery planning document, those designed to have a direct and timely impact on species recovery, ideally moving the species toward down or delisting, will be prioritized. Projects that assist in stabilizing endangered and threatened species on the brink of extinction by implementing priority 1 and 2 recovery actions will also be given greater consideration.
