New Mexico Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program
**Discontinued, Apply Now Under EQIP**
The Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) was a voluntary program for conservation-minded landowners who want to develop and improve wildlife habitat on privately owned or Tribal lands. Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) is a partnership between NRCS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to combine technical expertise with WHIP financial assistance; to combat the population decline of at-risk wildlife species, whose decline can be reversed and where it will benefit other wildlife species with similar habitat needs.
It was discontinued by the 2014 Farm Bill, but interested applicants can apply for wildlife and habitat assistance under the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
