Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program

The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program for people who want to 
develop and improve wildlife habitat primarily on private land. Through WHIP USDA's Natural 
Resources Conservation Service provides both technical assistance and up to 75 percent cost-share 
assistance to establish and improve fish and wildlife habitat. WHIP agreements between NRCS and 
the participant generally last from 5 to 10 years from the date the agreement is signed.

WHIP has proven to be a highly effective and widely accepted program across the country. By 
targeting wildlife habitat projects on all lands and aquatic areas, WHIP provides assistance to 
conservation minded landowners that are unable to meet the specific eligibility requirements of other 
USDA conservation programs.
