Grants & Agreements

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recognizes that success in conserving species will ultimately depend on working cooperatively with landowners, communities, and tribes to foster voluntary stewardship efforts on private lands. To this end, the Service partners with other agencies and groups to offer many voluntary grants, agreements, and programs geared toward assisting landowners with property improvements and conservation efforts. Please click the name of the program to learn more.

Safe Harbor Agreements (SHA) and Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances (CCAA) are voluntary conservation agreements between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and one or more public or private parties. They provide non-federal landowners with incentives for engaging in voluntary proactive conservation through assurances that limit future conservation obligations.

Currently, the Service has two joint Programmatic SHA/CCAAs. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about this program:

  • Upper Little Red River Watershed
  • Saline, Caddo, and Ouachita (Headwaters) Watersheds

Partners for Fish and Wildlife is a voluntary program in partnership with other federal agencies, State and local governments, educational institutions, businesses, and conservation organizations to help protect, enhance, and restore wildlife habitat on privately-owned land by providing landowners with technical and financial assistance.

Other Grants: The Service administers a wide variety of financial assistance programs that are authorized by Congress and address the Service’s mission. If you are interested in a grant for your property, we recommend contacting Partners for Fish and Wildlife.
