As a landowner, you have hopes and dreams for your woods. Whether you’d like to create more wildlife habitat, thin your forest or restore it following a natural disaster, your dreams require the right resources to come true.

Financial assistance programs, often times called cost share programs, can help make these dreams more attainable and affordable by providing the financial support and technical know-how you need. Some of the most helpful programs come from a surprising source: the USDA Farm Bill.
