Habitat Restoration Funding

Our office coordinates two habitat restoration programs for Maine.

The National Fish Passage Program (NFPP) is a voluntary, non-regulatory initiative of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that provides funding and technical assistance to reconnect aquatic habitat by removing or bypassing barriers.  Explore our regional webpage for more information on  fish passage fish passage
Fish passage is the ability of fish or other aquatic species to move freely throughout their life to find food, reproduce, and complete their natural migration cycles. Millions of barriers to fish passage across the country are fragmenting habitat and leading to species declines. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Fish Passage Program is working to reconnect watersheds to benefit both wildlife and people.
