13.2 - Develop a conservation funding source for a grassland conservation initiative

Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 16

Develop a conservation funding source—federal, state, and/or private—to create and implement a grassland conservation initiative.

Assessment of Status: Partially Complete

There has been no Congressional action on development of a conservation funding source, but the Natural Resources Conservation Service is working with the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies to expand conservation funding for grasslands via the Working Lands Initiative. The historical funding sources that do exist include the Grasslands Reserve Program and the federal Duck Stamp; however, funding is decreasing from the North American Wetlands Conservation Act and the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
