The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners for voluntary habitat restoration on their lands. The Partners program has demonstrated expertise in partnership building and efficiently delivering cost-effective projects to improve fish and wildlife habitat and complement the continued functioning of private land activities. In the range of the greater sage grouse, the Partners Program has helped fund 13 of the 23 SGI positions, and is working directly with interested private landowners to deliver on-the-ground sagebrush steppe habitat restoration projects.
