Grants & Partnerships

We work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s ecological services are built on a framework of partnership, whether our scientists are promoting the recovery of a listed species; participating in community watershed or land-use planning; reviewing Clean Water Act Section 404 permits; supporting habitat restoration, research and education efforts; conducting assessment, monitoring, and research activities; or any of the myriad other services in which we engage with others to achieve a beneficial co-existence between development and natural resources conservation.

Many ways to “partner.” We work together to pool limited government resources, bring together the appropriate experts, and promote efficiency and success through partnerships. We believe our conservation mission will best be accomplished through voluntary partnerships, two-way communication, and commitment to the best science.

You can partner with us:
  • Call us early if you anticipate planning or development work involving wetlands or tidelands, and to find out about endangered species considerations at your project site.
  • Important Note: Under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), all projects permitted, authorized, or funded by federal authorities that may affect endangered species must undergo ESA Section 7 consultation. Contact us if you have questions concerning this process or other federal requirements.

  • Learn more about Alaska’s valuable natural resources and ecology. The Fish and Wildlife Service is a good place to start.
  • Contact our Habitat Restoration Program staff if you are interested in cost-share opportunities through our Coastal, Partners for Fish and Wildlife, or Fish Passage Programs. For more about specific efforts, see Habitat Restoration Projects.
  • For more information about grants/partnerships with the Alaska Region, see Grants.
