Section 6 Grant Program News and Highlights

Grants under Section 6 of the Endangered Species Act provide critical resources for implementing on-the-ground projects that help conserve and recover threatened and endangered species.

Under Section 6, grants are authorized to states through the Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund. These funds may, in turn, be awarded to private landowners and groups for conservation projects.

States and territories must contribute a minimum non-federal match of 25 percent for the estimated program costs of approved projects, or 10 percent when two or more states or territories implement a joint project. A state or territory must have or enter into a cooperative agreement with the Service to receive grant funds.

For more information, contact the Northeast Region Section 6 Coordinator: Alison Whitlock, 413-253-8536,
