Small Grants Program

NH Fish and Game’s Small Grants Program help landowners who own a minimum of 25 contiguous acres restore or enhance habitat for wildlife. Funding of up to $4,000 per year (no more than $10,000 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 shrublands; 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. Download additional information below and contact your Fish and Game regional office to see if you have a project that qualifies.

This type of habitat benefits American woodcock, ruffed grouse, and several species of songbirds.
