Landowner Incentive Program
The Texas Landowner Incentive Program (LIP) is a collaborative effort between TPWD Wildlife and Inland Fisheries Divisions to meet the needs of private, non-federal landowners wishing to enact good conservation practices on their lands for the benefit of healthy terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. LIP is funded through partnerships with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and other partners.
The LIP Conserving Texas Rivers Funding Series
Targeting property in both the riparian zone and uplands of the:
- Rio Grande Watershed
- Llano River Watershed
- Pedernales River Watershed
- Blanco River Watershed
This Funding Series is specifically dedicated to conservation actions that positively impact these three watersheds. Property does not have to include a riparian area to be considered. Many forms of conservation land stewardship will qualify, including upland habitat enhancements. The goal is to restore riparian zones, restore aquatic habitats, improve water quality, increase water quantity, reduce erosion, and remove non-native species. The program encourages and supports a wide array of sustainable land-use activities that are compatible with aquatic resource conservation. While the ultimate goal of this funding is to improve habitat for the state fish, the Guadalupe Bass, this funding will be used to support projects implementing conservation actions on any habitat within the targeted watershed with the understanding that conservation based land stewardship will have a positive impact on the watershed.
This allocation of LIP funding is made possible through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation as well as partnerships with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. All projects approved for funding are thereby subject to the terms and conditions of that grant. Grants require a 50:50 cost share.
