USDA has sent almost 4.7 million dollars to six states for wetland mitigation projects.
The Wetland Mitigation Banking Program (WMBP) supports the development of mitigation banks for the restoration, creation, or enhancement of wetlands to compensate for unavoidable impacts to wetlands at another location.
Funding has been awarded to projects including:
- $1 million for Wetland Mitigation LLC in Michigan.
- $696,000 for Magnolia Land Partners LLC in Indiana.
- $499,000 for Corblu Ecology Group, LLC in Georgia.
