Proposals to the USDA NRCS Wetland Reserve Enhancement Partnership (WREP) are due September 23, 2022. Eligible partners include Tribes, state and local governments and non-government organizations. WREP partners are required to contribute a financial or technical assistance fund match.
WREP is part of the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP). Through WREP projects, eligible conservation partners protect, restore and enhance high-priority wetlands on agricultural lands. WREP enables effective integration of wetland restoration on working agricultural landscapes, providing meaningful benefits to farmers and ranchers who enroll in the program and to the communities where the wetlands exist.
