Description: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IADNR) have a signed Memorandum of Understanding for the management of the Iowa Wetland Management District Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs). These WPAs typically share borders with state wildlife properties and both agencies share similar, Prairie Pothole Joint Venture goals. This project will restore wetland basins critical for the life cycles of wetland dependent migratory bird species. Waterfowl Production Areas in the Iowa Wetland Management District are located in defined Prairie Pothole Joint Venture priority complexes. This is a notice of intent to award a single source cooperative agreement to Iowa IADNR without competition under justification 505DM 2.14.B. (1), (2) & (4). IADNR is the intended recipient of this Cooperative Agreement funding, due to their unique qualifications and the relationship they have established with the USFWS Iowa Wetland Management District. For many years, the IADNR has managed many of the Waterfowl Production Areas contained in the Iowa Wetland Management District for the USFWS through a signed Memorandum of Understanding. IADNR routinely designs and plans these wetland restoration projects in coordination with the Service. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will also be substantially involved in projects under this funding opportunity. In particular, the service will be responsible for the following: planning, design, project over-site, management, and monitoring and operational involvement during performance by IADNR.
