A Conservation Program for Private Landowners

Our nation’s private landowners are critical to the success of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 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.

The goal of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners Program is to work with private and Tribal
landowners who want to voluntarily improve fish, wildlife, and plant habitat on their lands.

The program provides cost-share funding and technical expertise to landowners, and landowners can
request assistance at any time of the year. The program’s focus is on improvement of wetland, riparian,
sagebrush/grasslands, wet-meadow, and aquatic habitats to benefit migratory birds, and threatened,
endangered and other sensitive or declining species.

Eligible Landowners
• Individual private landowners, Native American Tribes, corporations, schools, counties, cities,
and other groups.

• Projects on federal and state lands are not eligible.

Selection Criteria
• Projects are selected based on their benefits to wetland, riparian, sagebrush/grasslands,
wet-meadow, and aquatic habitats for migratory birds, threatened or endangered species, and
sensitive or declining species.

• Project selection occurs at the local level based on identified priorities.

• The intent of the program is to improve native fish, wildlife, and plant habitats; plantings and
seedings should generally consist of native species.

• Partners funds may not be used on habitat improvement projects being implemented for mitigation
purposes under any federal or state regulatory program.

Program Application
• Landowners can request assistance at any time during the year.  There is no application period.

• Service personnel will help the landowner develop the project proposal and application, including an
agreement between the landowner and the Service, or will meet with the landowner to provide
technical assistance.
