Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) Maps

The Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program for conservation-minded landowners who want to develop and improve wildlife habitat on agricultural land, non-industrial private forest land, and Tribal land. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) administers WHIP to provide both technical assistance and up to 75 percent cost-share assistance to establish and improve fish and wildlife habitat.

To learn more see WHIP. The data used to make these maps is available in a downloadable csv file.
