Private Land Programs (formerly known as the Private Land Initiative) are funded with revenue from the sale of Habitat Stamps and the interest accrued from the Department's general fund balance. Goals of these programs are to conserve fish and wildlife habitat, provide assistance to landowners for developing and protecting habitat, and provide the public with opportunities to access fish and wildlife resources on private land, particularly hunting access.
Three full-time employees located in the Department's central office in Bismarck head up these programs and administer their budgets, while nine full-time employees located in district field offices provide financial and technical assistance to local landowners and district biologists.
