NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal officials have set aside more than $1 million for Tennessee landowners who help conserve wildlife.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said owners of agricultural and forest land can apply by June 10 for funding under the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program.
Grants are available to help eligible landowners and operators develop or enhance planned upland, wetland, riparian and aquatic habitat areas on their property. Only "ready to implement" projects will be ranked for funding.
Four TWRA biologists in Jackson, Murfreesboro, Cookeville, and Knoxville will work with landowners to develop management plans.
