Interior Offers Grants for 65 Endangered Species

$40 million to go toward land acquisition and conservation planning projects.

The Department of the Interior released $40.6 million in grants to help preserve the 65 endangered species currently at risk in America. The funding will be distributed through the Fish and Wildlife Service to 10 states and the Virgin Islands, allowing local governments to purchase more land for wildlife sanctuaries and implement vital conservation efforts for U.S. plants, animals, and insects.

“Today’s funding announcement is another way in which we are honoring our promise to conserve and restore America’s lands and waters for the benefit of all,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “I appreciate the Service’s continued efforts to work hand in hand with states and private landowners to connect people with nature and conserve fish, wildlife and their habitats.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland to be led by God as she oversees the many agencies within the Interior Department.
  • For department and agency officials as they seek to preserve endangered species.
