NAWCA Appropriations Action

Every federal dollar provided by NAWCA must be matched by at least one dollar from non-federal sources. Because the program is so effective, NAWCA funds are usually doubled or tripled on the local level. More than $1 billion in federal grants has been allocated for NAWCA projects – a figure that has leveraged an additional $3 billion from matching and non-matching funds. We ask that you contact your Representative and Senators and urge them to support NAWCA funding, either by signing on to these letters or by including the NAWCA program in their appropriations requests for FY2017.

Federal Duck Stamp Legislation

Recently, bipartisan companion bills were introduced in the House and Senate to increase the price of the federal duck stamp. DU strongly supports this effort to ensure that the investment waterfowl hunters have made toward protecting waterfowl habitat over the last 80 years is not eroded, and that the conservation tradition of this stamp will continue. Contact your elected officials today and ask them to be a co-sponsor for this important legislation.

With NAWCA funding approved at $35.5M, DU turns focus to reauthorization

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Dec. 21, 2011 - Ducks and other wetland-dependent wildlife will benefit from last week's congressional approval of a $35.5 million budget for the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) program for FY 2012. While significantly less than what the administration recommended months ago, this number is much improved from an initial $20 million figure proposed by the U.S. House of Representatives in the spring, largely through the work of Ducks Unlimited, its supporters and other conservation organizations.
