The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is committed to creating new opportunities to assist underrepresented (i.e., minority) landowners and communities not traditionally reached. USFWS field staff have participated in a series of workshops aimed at increasing awareness of diverse land ownership in the southeast. This, our next step, is to focus on identifying specific partnering opportunities for staff to engage underrepresented landowners & communities, address individual needs, expand the knowledge of landowner assistance programs, and increase awareness for land stewardship and its benefits to species conservation.
Help us learn more about your properties, priorities, and needs, and, in turn, you can learn about us!
We will provide helpful information related to USFWS financial assistance programs that can be beneficial to you and your lands, as well as identifying assistance opportunities from other organizations!
We can work with you to identify opportunities with natural resource agency staff on project development!
Together, we can gain a better understanding of potential collaborative opportunities that will benefit you, the landowner, as well as improve habitat and conserve wildlife…a win-win!
