Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP)

harvestThe Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program provides financial incentives to develop habitat for fish and wildlife on private lands.

Participants agree to implement a wildlife habitat development plan and USDA agrees to provide cost-share assistance for the initial implementation of wildlife habitat development practices.

USDA and program participants enter into a cost-share agreement for wildlife habitat development. This agreement generally lasts a minimum of 10 years from the date that the contract is signed.
