Grants to California entities to acquire land for approved species recovery plans. Funding may be used to purchase 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.
Established in FY 2001, 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. Under this program, the Service provides matching grants to States for specific land acquisition projects that will conserve listed species habitat in perpetuity through fee simple acquisition or the acquisition of permanent conservation easements.
For Recovery Land Acquisition Grants - The funds must contribute to the recovery of at least one listed species pursuant to a draft or final recovery plan or similar conservation document in which habitat protection or land acquisition is identified as a priority action necessary for species recovery.
General Program Funding Priorities
All proposals must be consistent with the conservation objectives outlined in approved or draft species recovery plan, recovery outline, species status assessment, or similar conservation document. Highest priority projects are designed to have a direct and timely impact on the recovery of listed species, ideally moving the target species toward down or delisting. Further, projects that complement State and Service efforts to prevent the extinction of a listed species and preclude the need to list candidate and at-risk species under the ESA in the future are also prioritized.
