2021-23 Budget Development Process

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is developing its budget proposal for the 2021-23 biennium through a public process involving stakeholders, customers, Commissioners, and the Governor’s Office.  During a normal ODFW budget development cycle, we hold two External Budget Advisory Committee (EBAC) meetings—one in March and one in May—as well as multiple town hall meetings in April.  Due to health concerns around COVID-19, and to be in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order, this year we will not be holding in-person EBAC meetings, or the normally scheduled town hall meetings.  As an alternative to the in-person meetings, we have set up an online comments form, where EBAC members can share advice, recommendations, and input with us. 

Public comments on the budget can be submitted through May 1, 2020 by email to or by mail to ODFW Director’s Office, 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. SE, Salem, OR 97302-1142.

Despite the current situation we find ourselves in with COVID-19, ODFW will present the Agency Request Budget (ARB) for consideration by the Fish and Wildlife Commission during the June 2020 Commission meeting in order to stay in alignment with the state budgeting process.  The Department will submit its Agency Request Budget to the Governor in September 2020.  The final ODFW 2021-23 budget will be set by the Legislature during the 2021 session.
