Section 6 Grants

Narrated Section 6 Slideshow - provides a brief overview of Section 6 of the Endangered Species Act which authorizes providing financial assistance to States.

In 2016, states in the Midwest received grants for Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation, to address white-nose syndrome and for wolf/livestock demonstration.

 

News Release (Sept. 15, 2016): The Endangered Species Act provides millions of dollars in funding each year for conservation efforts through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund. This year, threatened and endangered species in 20 states will benefit from $44.8 million in grants from the fund - including $4,008,625 for six species in the Midwest.
