NRCS will accept proposals for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed three (3) years, submitted to NRCS State Conservationists from eligible applicants. The Wetlands Reserve Enhancement Program (WREP) is administered under the Wetlands Reserve Program and uses existing authority to enhance delivery of WRP. The WREP provides a mechanism for the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to form special partnerships with others to improve or expand the delivery of WRP. This request for proposals is to obtain partnership proposals: 1) that address wetland creation and enhancement efforts on easements enrolled in prior years, 2) where partners will contribute significantly to WRP technical assistance costs (In accordance with the Conservation Technical Assistance Program Description -- technical assistance is defined as: help provided by NRCS, and employees of other entities or agencies under the technical supervison of NRCS, to clients to address opportunities, concerns, and problems related to the use of natural resources); and 3) that provide assistance with managing easement projects. $500,000 will be reserved for partnership proposals that address Bog Turtle habitat in the east and partnership proposals that address Ivory-Billed Woodpecker habitat in Arkansas. NRCS estimates this request for proposals may result in addressing wetland restoration, creation, enhancement, and easement management on approximately 5,000 acres. Proposals are accepted from all 50 States, the Caribbean Area (Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands), and the Pacific Basin Area (Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands). Proposals must be submitted to the appropriate NRCS State Conservationist. Addresses are identified in the Appendix of the Request for Proposals. NRCS State Conservationists will submit to the NRCS National Headquarters, the top two (2) priority proposals based on State resource concerns and technical resource needs. Complete proposals will be evaluated by an agency review board at the national level. The review board will score proposals and provide scores along with recommendations for selection to the Chief, NRCS.
For technical assistance, please contact: Leslie Deavers, National WRP Manager at Area Code (202) 720-1062 or email at leslie.deavers@usda.gov
