Section 6 of the Endangered Species Act authorizes grants to States through the Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund. These funds may, in turn, be awarded to private landowners and groups for conservation projects. The following four types of grants are available through this Fund:
Projects Funded by Section 6 Grants
Private Stewardship Grants
From 2002 through 2008 these grants provided assistance directly to landowners for land management that benefited species and their habitats. Congress did not provide funding for this program after 2008.
