    In fiscal year 2016, NFWF leveraged $2.8 million in U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) funds into $14 million to support 48 conservation projects benefiting habitat restoration for native fish and plants. BLM funds were used for a multi-agency youth conservation employment initiative and to support conservation investments in the North Slope of Alaska, Northern Great Plains, Northern Rockies, and across western native trout habitats. At the end of the fiscal year, BLM and NFWF announced a new Endangered Species Recovery Fund that will focus on downlisting, delisting and keeping candidate species from becoming listed.
