US Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) - New Jersey
Grants to New Jersey private landowners and agricultural producers for wildlife conservation activities focused on the Golden-Winged Warbler, American Black Duck, and/or Northern Bobwhite (Bobwhite Quail). Funding is intended to provide technical and financial support to increase conservation efforts and share the cost of conservation practices with landowners in the areas known to support one or more of the selected species. WLFW applications within the defined habitat focal areas will receive highest consideration.
Through Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW), NRCS works with partners and private landowners to focus voluntary conservation on working landscapes. NRCS provides technical and financial assistance to agricultural producers, helping them plan and implement conservation practices that benefit target species and priority landscapes.
NRCS has a broad delivery system to put conservation on the ground at the local level, across the entire country. With nearly two thirds of all species federally listed as threatened or endangered with populations on private lands, the ability to work with private landowners and target conservation efforts can have a tremendous impact.
This partnership uses innovative approaches with farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners to restore and protect priority habitat areas for selected wildlife species. Visit the national NRCS Working Lands for Wildlife page for a current list of WLWF species.
