About Our Project Funding
Funding for this website was provided by the Renewable Resources Extension Act (RREA) Grant Program. The RREA of 1978 provided for federal funding for expanded and comprehensive natural resource Extension programs to sustain renewable resources on forests and rangelands. The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) oversees RREA funding to 72 land-grant institutions across the United States. In partnership with these land-grant institutions, RREA funding is used to deliver educational programs to stakeholders, including rangeland and forestland managers and landowners.
TCWP would like to thank staff at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas A&M Forest Service, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, Texas Land Trust Council, USDA Farm Services Agency, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Cornell University Lab of Ornithology, and Ducks Unlimited for their assistance in researching and reviewing conservation program information.
