The WHIP (Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program) administered by the US Department of Agriculture. The Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) was a voluntary program for conservation-minded landowners who wanted to develop and improve wildlife habitat on agricultural land, nonindustrial private forest land, and Indian land. Although no longer an active program, some resources on land management are still available.
