We are interested in conserving working lands, wildlife habitat and promoting land stewardship that is sustainable. We work with mitigation, acquisitions/easements, counties, and planning.

Idaho Department of Fish and Game offers many Programs / Grants for Private Landowners.
There are several programs available in Idaho that provide financial and technical assistance to landowners to maintain, develop, or improve fish and wildlife habitat on their lands. State programs include the Habitat Improvement Program, Landowner Incentive Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Grant programs and State Wildlife Grants. Federal and nongovernmental programs also are available.

Any private landowner is eligible to participate in some kind of private lands program. Idaho Fish and Game habitat biologists can provide guidance to landowners about the benefits and types of improvements that can be done on their property. Benefits range from improved hunting opportunities for your family to increased land value.

Habitat Biologists provide technical assistance at no cost to the landowner.

Technical assistance includes:

  • Informing landowners of the types of assistance programs available
  • Help determine which program or combination of programs will best fit the landowner's needs
  • Help landowner with application procedures, including enrolling in Farm Bill programs.
  • Working with landowners to develop a management plan or project design to benefit fish and wildlife habitat on their lands.
  • Determine what species, including at-risk species, are on their land and which would benefit from habitat improvements or protection.
