Created by the Oregon Legislature in 1993, the A&H Program is funded primarily by a $2 surcharge on hunting licenses. Funds raised by the program are distributed through grants awarded to individual and orporate landowners, conservation organizations, and others to cooperatively fund wildlife habitat improvement and hunter access projects in the state.

There are six regional A&H advisory councils within Oregon that serve as the initial review body for A&H grant proposals submitted within their region. The state A&H Board provides the next level of review, taking into account the advisory council’s recommendations. Approved projects are then forwarded to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission for final review and funding approval. Each advisory council is composed of seven members, including three landowner representatives, three hunter representatives and one public-at-large representative, who also serves as the council chair.

To receive a hard-copy application, or for assistance downloading or completing the form, please contact Heather Thomas, (503) 947-6314 or Heather.A.Thomas@state.or.us.
