USDA Seeks Project Proposals to Protect and Restore Critical Wetlands

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2017 – Acting Deputy Agriculture Secretary Michael Young today announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing up to $15 million in technical and financial assistance to help eligible conservation partners voluntarily protect, restore and enhance critical wetlands on agricultural lands.
