Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Mississippi landowners in eligible counties for projects related to habitat maintenance. Grant funds will defray the costs of implementing and conducting prescribed fires. Eligible habitat types include pines, hardwoods, fallow fields, and warm-season grasses. Focal counties for the 2020 funding cycle include Prentiss, Monroe, Lowndes, Noxubee, Amite, Pike, Walthall, Marion, Covington, Jefferson Davis, Forest, Lamar, Perry, Stone, and Pearl River.

The goal of the Fire on the Forty campaign is to promote the use of prescribed fire on privately owned fields and upland forests through cost-sharing with private landowners to apply prescribed fire. The ultimate objective of the program is to increase fire maintained habitat in targeted geographical areas. Targeting efforts in a biologically significant area helps develop "habitat patches" in close proximity to one another so that less mobile wildlife, such as bobwhites and rabbits, can potentially travel between managed patches. Identifying focal areas also helps local biologists use resources more efficiently and increases the likelihood that neighboring landowners will become interested in prescribed burning.
