Design and implement stream restoration measures to restore these streams to their natural state.
Develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitat and species of Tribal cultural or traditional importance.
Deliver crop insurance education and information to U.S. agricultural producers in Pennsylvania where there is traditionally, and continues to be a low level of Federal crop insurance participation and availability, and producers are underserved by the Federal crop insurance program.
Assist Pennsylvania in conserving land and natural resources in the Highlands Region through Federal assistance for land conservation projects in which a State entity acquires land or an interest in land from a willing seller to permanently protect resources of high conservation value.
Advance the U.S. National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking and its associated implementation plan.
Enhance and develop health management infrastructure and assist Indian Tribes and Tribal organizations.
