Wetland Program Plans

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has strongly encouraged states and tribes to develop Wetland Program Plans (WPPs) consistent with one or more of the Enhancing State and Tribal Programs (ESTP) core elements. Wetland Program Plans can establish priorities, set short and long term program development goals and provide states and tribes with a blueprint for future action to create and improve state programs to conserve manage and protect wetlands. In 2013 ASWM completed a two-year project to assist states and tribes in developing Wetland Program Plans.  Links are provided below to a Wetland Program Plan Handbook, a series of recorded webinars and other resources that were created to assist states and tribes. Completed state and tribal Wetland Program Plans are posted by EPA Region on the EPA website.
