What type of agreement would this be?


The proposed agreement is expected to be a conservation benefit agreement, which is a new agreement type proposed by USFWS. Conservation benefit agreements (CBAs) are proposed under rule updates that affect how USFWS implements Section 10 of the Endangered Species Act. These agreements are intended to replace Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances (CCAA) and Safe Harbor Agreements (SHA).
