Wildlife Habitat still taking grant ideas

A federal program could fund local efforts to help wildlife, if local people apply by a March 23 deadline.

The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program offers more than $1.1 million in California this year for environmental projects.

Those could include adding fish ladders in waterways to help fish migrate, clearing obstacles in streams, restoring native plants, removing invasive plants, building nesting boxes or raptor perches.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture runs the program, authorized in the 1996 Farm Bill, through the California Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The application deadline closed in December, but state officials extended it to the end of the workday on March 23 to include more applications. The competitive process accepts agricultural and non-agricultural applications and ranks project proposals based on their benefit to wildlife.
