ODFW Budget

2013-15 Budget

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife receives funding from several sources. A third of ODFW’s revenue comes from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. Another third comes from the federal government – much of it tied to the sale of hunting and fishing equipment. The rest of the department funding comes from a variety of sources. Most of that funding can be used only for specific purposes spelled out in grants, contracts or statute. Although ODFW manages fish and wildlife for all Oregonians, only about six percent of ODFW’s revenue comes from Oregon’s general tax dollars and the lottery combined.

2013-15 Projected Revenues
$361.2 million Total Funds


For the 2013-15 biennium, ODFW staffs 47 offices and sites to provide customer service, operates 32 hatchery facilities, and manages 16 wildlife areas with 1,263 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs).

ODFW accomplishes its mission through its fish and wildlife divisions and regional offices. Staff in the divisions and in the regional and field offices is supported by administrative divisions which include information and education, human resources, information systems and administrative services. Oregon State Police enforce fish and wildlife regulations.
