MassWildlife Habitat Management Grant application period is open now
 
FY 2020 MHMGP grant application is available now. Applications must be postmarked by September 2, 2019. 
 
The MassWildlife Habitat Management Grant Program (MHMGP) provides financial assistance to private and municipal landowners of conserved lands to enhance wildlife habitat, while promoting public access for outdoor recreation. Over the past 4 years, the MHMGP has awarded over $1.5M in funding to 28 different organizations and individuals for 63 habitat projects.   
 
 
The MHMGP encourages landowners to engage in active habitat management on their properties to benefit many types of wildlife, including species of greatest conservation need and game species. Although MassWildlife and other conservation organizations have made unprecedented investments in land acquisition in Massachusetts, land protection alone is not enough to guarantee the persistence of the Commonwealth’s diverse wildlife. Investment in habitat restoration and management is urgently needed on public and private lands across the state. To address this need, MassWildlife and the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs have substantially increased their investment in habitat management on state wildlife lands and are committed to working with partners to promote these efforts on other conserved lands across the state.
 
Questions regarding this program can be directed to the Program Coordinator, James Burnham, at james.burnham@mass.gov or (508) 389-6343.
