Small Grants Program for Wildlife Habitat Restoration and Enhancement
N.H. Fish and Game's Small Grants Program helps landowners with a minimum of 25 acres restore or enhance habitat for wildlife. Funding of up to $2,000 per year (no more than $6,000 over a ten-year period) is available for the creation and/or maintenance of wildlife habitat within the property. Projects that may qualify for funding include: brush clearing or mowing to maintain grasslands and shrub-lands; release of old apple trees; and maintenance of woodland openings. In exchange for the grant, landowners agree that their land will remain open for non-motorized public access activities, including hunting. For more information, contact the Wildlife Division at (603) 271-2461, or e-mail wildlife@wildlife.nh.gov. NH WAP

A Natural Investment: Since 2000, State Wildlife Grants have transformed species and habitat conservation in New Hampshire.
