Good Neighbor Wildlife Habitat Improvement

Good Neighbor Wildlife Habitat Improvement

The Good Neighbor Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program is for the purpose of providing cost-share for habitat management projects on private lands. The focus of these activities is on the removal of invasive woody vegetation from grasslands and the restoration of woodlands and grasslands.

Applicants’ property must directly border district owned public access properties or be conservation easement properties held by the district. 

Cost-Share Percentage 75%
Cost-Share Max Per Year $10,000
Landowner Cash Match Required 25%

Allowable cost-share practices include:

  • Prescribed burning
  • Herbicide treatment
  • Native grass/forb seed mixes
  • Complete grassland renovation (i.e., seed, site prep, and seeding cost)
  • Woody vegetation thinning/clearing (i.e., mechanical or hand treatments)

Program funds will be provided through reimbursement and payment will only be made once work is completed.

Landowners interested in participating in the program can contact Will Inselman ( for more information or call the LPSNRD office (402)476-2729.
