ODFW Budget

View this meeting on YouTube

ODFW accomplishes its mission through its fish, habitat and wildlife divisions and regional offices. Staff in these divisions and in the regional and field offices are supported by administrative divisions which include information and education, human resources, information systems, and administrative services. Oregon State Police plays a key role in the mission through enforcement of fish and wildlife regulations.

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’s 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 twelve percent of ODFW’s revenue comes from Oregon’s general tax dollars and the lottery combined. Please see the link below, ODFW Budget 101, for further explanation of the department’s funding sources.

ODFW and its partners continue to explore alternative methods of funding fish and wildlife management that benefits all Oregonians.

ODFW develops its proposed budget through a public process that begins several months before the legislative session. The process concludes with legislative approval of the department budget.
