Funding Partnerships for Action

Since 2012, over $115 in Department of Defense (DoD) funds, $177 million in Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds, $37 million in Department of the Interior (DOI) funds, $91 million in state funds, $13 million in local funds, and $59 million in private funds have supported projects across seven sentinel landscapes.

This crucial investment has permanently protected over 224,000 acres of land and helped implement sustainable management practices on an additional 1.6 million acres of land.  Furthermore, farmers, ranchers, and other private landowners across the seven sentinel landscapes have independently executed 27,000 conservation practices using USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service's technical assistance.

The tables and figures below summarize our funding since the beginning of the partnership, as well as the total number of acres protected and enrolled at each sentinel landscape.
