Program Components and Guidelines




The Urban Conservation Treaty for Migratory Birds program offers a great deal of flexibility to incorporate the best combination of projects that are appropriate for the city and that will also have the greatest benefits to birds. This section provides a general description of each component and guidelines to help develop a successful proposal.


City and Service representatives must demonstrate in their application how they will address the four program components:

  • Education and Outreach
  • Habitat Creation, Protection and Restoration
  • Hazard Reduction
  • Non-native, Invasive, or Nuisance Species Management
