Colorado Wildlife Habitat Protection Program
The Colorado Wildlife Habitat Protection Program (CWHPP) is a state-wide program that provides funding opportunities?? for private landowners who wish to voluntarily protect important wildlife habitat, and/or, provide sustainable wildlife-related recreational access to the public. ??
The CWHPP is an incentive-based, voluntary program that utilizes Conservation Easements, Access Easements, and in some circumstances, fee title purchases to accomplish strategic wildlife conservation goals and/or public access goals. Priority is given to Conservation Easements and Public Access Easements over Fee Title per CPW Policy and Title 33-4-102.7 C.R.S.
Funding for qualified projects is made possible by a conservation partnership with Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and from revenue generated from the sale of habitat stamps? (required of all hunters and anglers). The CWHPP priorities are guided by requirements of the funding sources (Habitat Stamp Program and GOCO) and the State Wildlife Action Plan?.
