The program encourages creation of high quality wildlife habitats that support wildlife populations of National, State, Tribal, and local significance. The funding provides technical and financial assistance to landowners and others to develop upland, wetland, riparian, and aquatic habitat areas on their property.

In FY-2009, NRCS obligated $57.8 million and enrolled more than 3,000 contracts covering more than 800,000 acres into WHIP.  Just over 2,200 applications were not funded in FY-2009, totaling more than $34.7 million.
