Sikes Tripartite MOU (PDF)
Memorandum of understanding between the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies for a cooperative integrated natural resource management program on military installations
Acting DUSD(I&E), Mr. John Conger, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, and Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Executive Director Ron Regan have signed the 2013 Sikes Act MOU for a Cooperative Integrated Natural Resource Management Program on Military Installations. This MOU renews the commitment of DoD, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the states to work together to manage the natural resources entrusted to DoD across the country. Among other provisions, the MOU creates a streamlined review process for updating DoD's integrated natural resources management plans (INRMPs) with minor changes. This will facilitate coordination among the three parties to the MOU and make the critical habitat exemption more readily available to military installations.
Natural Resources Funding Manual (PDF)
The Natural Resources Funding Manual identifies funding resources for which the Department of Defense (DoD) may apply, directly or through partnerships with local, state, or tribal governments; non-governmental organizations (NGOs); commercial organizations; or private landowners. It is intended to facilitate the search for funding sources, but is by no means a comprehensive list of all available resources.
