Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program for people who
want to develop and improve wildlife habitat primarily on private land.
Through WHIP USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service provides both
technical assistance and cost-share assistance to establish and improve
fish and wildlife habitat. WHIP agreements between NRCS and the participant
generally last from 5 to 10 years from the date the agreement is signed.
WHIP has proven to be a highly effective and widely accepted program across
the country. By targeting wildlife habitat projects on all lands and aquatic
areas, WHIP provides assistance to conservation minded landowners who
are unable to meet the specific eligibility requirements of other USDA
for waterfowl on the
Udean and Nancy Burke farm
in the Bandy's community.
