The State of Delaware and a variety of federal programs provide assistance for landowners to protect species and habitats on SRAs. For example, the Delaware Landowner Incentive Program offers private landowners technical and financial incentives to protect, enhance or restore habitat to benefit rare species. The Delaware Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Program provides Delaware farmers technical and financial assistance to take part of their agricultural land out of production and allow it to return to its natural state.
The state Forest Land Enhancement Program provides technical and financial assistance to landowners to better manage forest resources. The federal Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program assists agricultural producers with protecting water resources while providing opportunities to enhance wildlife habitat. State and federal biologists can meet with landowners to provide information, develop conservation plans, and help landowners enroll in applicable programs.
