WWA Wetland Restoration Project Application:
The Wisconsin Waterfowl Association is able to help interested landowners in implementing a wetland restoration on your land. Through our project application process, the association can support these efforts in a variety of ways: through technical expertise, both on-site and with permitting processes, through access to potential grant-funding opportunities, as well as the potential to have WWA member-funds applied as a match to other sources. Naturally, there is a broad spectrum of project opportunities, and we are hopeful that your proposal is of a type and within the cost guidelines established by our board of directors.
Please fill out the project application form below as soon as possible, since many funding sources are limited in both amount, location, and time availability. For starters, if you don’t know a lot about what you’re seeking to do, but would like to find out what might be possible, providing the site location (town/section/range), and your contact information is key. This allows WWA project staff the opportunity to do a quick review, to see what might be possible, before more information is researched. Eventually, the proposal should have detailed descriptions of the project, including total cost (if available), requested amount from WWA, cost sharing assistance (partners with the project), average depth and surface acres of wetland restored, proposed start and finish dates, approximate date contribution is needed, and an aerial photograph of the project area which you can get from your county zoning or ASCS office.
After receipt of your application, the WWA project staff will notify you, if funds are available for your project. If your project meets initial requirements, and is considered for funding, you will be contacted for more detailed information and on-site evaluation.
Thank you for your interest in wetland conservation!
