Private and tribal landowners in Arizona can apply for technical and financial help to develop and improve wildlife habitats.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service in Arizona is accepting applications for the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program Jan. 14-25.

The Natural Resources Conservation District provides technical assistance and 75 percent of the cost for projects that establish and improve fish and wildlife habitat.

Emphasis is being placed on projects focusing on the following areas:

• Grassland restoration

• Riparian restoration

• Wetland restoration

• Bat habitat protection

• Threatened or endangered species

The amount of money available for this sign-up period hasn’t been determined. In 2007, $367,000 was awarded with six different wildlife projects benefiting from the assistance.

Applications can be turned in at any of the 25 field offices across Arizona. Visit www.az.nrcs.usda.gov for office locations, or call Steve Smarik at (602) 280-8785 for more information.
