Wildlife habitat assistance for landowners

There is still time for landowners to sign up for wildlife habitat cost share through the Federal (EQIP) program or Environmental Quality Incentives Program.

Landowners have a variety of practices to choose from which can potentially give cost share up to 75 percent of the cost. Some of those practices include wetland development, brush management, timber stand improvement, tree and shrub plantings, native grass and pollinator seedings and many other practices that can create and help maintain wildlife habitat. Landowners have until April 1 to apply for potential funding.
