Agency: Department of Agriculture, Commodity Credit Corporation
This rule establishes the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) regulations for the Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program (VPA-HIP). This is a new program authorized by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the 2008 Farm Bill). The purpose of VPA-HIP is to provide grants to State and tribal governments to encourage owners and operators of privately-held farm, ranch, and forest land to voluntarily make that land available for access by the public for wildlife-dependent recreation, including hunting, fishing, and other compatible recreation and to improve fish and wildlife habitat on their land, under programs administered by State or tribal governments.
