Wetland Reserve Enhancement Program (WREP)

WREP is a voluntary conservation program that works through partnership agreements with states, nongovernmental organizations and tribes, as defined in section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  WREP is a component of the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) through which NRCS enters into agreements with eligible partners to leverage resources to carry out high-priority wetland protection and improve wildlife habitat.

Benefits to partners in WREP agreements include:

  • Wetland Restoration in high-priority areas
  • The ability to cost-share restoration or enhancement components beyond those required by NRCS
  • Participating in management or monitoring of selected project locations
  • Opportunities to use innovate restoration methods and practices
