Participating Special Entities

Public or quasi-public entities, such as special districts or entities not subject to the jurisdiction of the Co-Permittees, may conduct or initiate projects or ongoing activities within the permit area that could affect listed species and that may require take authorization from USFWS and/or CDFW.  Such organizations may include existing or future school districts, water districts, irrigation districts, transportation agencies, local park districts, geologic hazard abatement districts, or other utilities or special districts that own land or provide public services.  These public agencies, known as Participating Special Entities (PSE), can request coverage under the Habitat Plan. Municipalities that are not a Co-Permittee are not eligible to participate using this status.

If you are interested in applying as a PSE project, please contact the Habitat Agency at (408) 779-7261 for initial consultation prior to filling out application materials.
