DNREC : Division of Fish & Wildlife : Delaware Private Lands Assistance Program

Delaware Landowner Incentive Program (DELIP)

Bog Turtle

Landowner Incentive Program Funds Request for Proposal 2009

Are you concerned about Delaware’s wildlife? Do you enjoy watching wildlife? Hunting? Fishing? Birding? Have you ever wanted to make your habitat more attractive to wildlife but didn’t have the financial or technical expertise? The Division of Fish and Wildlife may have a program for you! The Delaware Landowner Incentive Program provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners interested in restoring habitat for wildlife. Give us a call to see if you qualify!

What is the Delaware Landowner Incentive Program?

The Delaware Landowner Incentive Program (DELIP) offers private landowners, particularly agricultural producers, technical and financial incentives to protect, enhance and/or restore habitat to benefit species-at-risk. This may range from creating shallow water wetland habitat for migratory shorebirds and controlling invasive species in bog turtle habitats to establishing native warm season grasses for Upland sandpipers and planting trees for the Delmarva fox squirrel. Although DELIP money targets species-at-risk, habitat work for the target species always translates to benefits for a wide suite of species including many game species.

Who is eligible?

Any Private landowner interested in improving wildlife habitat on their property. This program is aimed at all types of landowners, from those interested in improving a few acres to those who manage hundreds of acres of land.

How do I apply?

Staff biologists are available to meet with landowners to discuss how you can improve wildlife habitat on your property. Biologists will also provide information on available conservation programs, develop conservation plans and help landowners enroll in applicable conservation programs.

Don’t miss out! If you are unsure if your property qualifies, have questions regarding programs and/or just want to learn more contact one of the biologists below for more detailed information on these programs and how we can help you.
