EQIP, or Environmental Quality Incentives Program provides information and financial incentives for landowners to manage their land for wildlife.
How does the program work?
A Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department biologist will walk your land with you and identify ways you can improve wildlife habitat on your property.
What does it cost?
The consultation is free. Funds are also available to cover some or all of costs of recommended habitat improvement projects.
