Description: In 2005 FHWA entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Kentucky Ecological Services Fields Office, to fund conservation projects. Through this agreement, the USFWS identifies properties where conservation projects are most desirable for the continued protection of endangered species and their habitat, and which have the greatest potential to yield wetland and stream mitigation credits. All stream and wetland mitigation credits developed from the project are available solely for the use of the KYTC. Once a site has been identified, the USFWS prepares a proposal for developing mitigation credits on the property and meets with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and other regulatory review agencies on-site and in advance to explain the proposal and to determine if the USACE is in agreement with the number of credits that will likely be received if the mitigation plan is successful.

After this process a proposal is submitted to KYTC for review and approval. If the proposal is accepted, KYTC makes payment to USFWS in accordance with the schedule included in the proposal. USFWS holds these funds and issues payment to a non-profit third party as project milestones are met. USFWS maintains communication with KYTC and FHWA throughout the development process to assure that mitigation goals are being met. By entering into this agreement the sites are preserved in perpetuity and the cost of site construction and monitoring are kept at a minimum.

These new agreements shifted the relationships among FHWA, KYTC, and the USFWS from a generally adversarial relationship to one of mutual cooperation and trust. The USFWS believes it has a vested interest in ensuring that high quality habitat is replaced through KYTC’s mitigation programs, and invests resources in helping KYTC develop high quality mitigation projects that are cost-effective.
