Wetlands Program Development Grants

Wetlands are an essential part of our landscape. They provide numerous benefits
that include rich floral and faunal habitat, improved water quality, flood
abatement, water storage and groundwater recharge, support of fisheries, and
opportunities for education and recreation. Given these benefits, many
communities are exploring how to best protect their existing wetland resources
and restore the thousands of acres that have been lost or impaired.
