May 16 meeting on ODFW 2025-27 Agency Requested Budget

May 7, 2024

SALEM, Ore.—ODFW will host a public engagement meeting to discuss development of the agency’s 2025-27 Agency Request Budget (ARB) on Thursday, May 16 at 3 p.m. 

People can join the meeting via Microsoft Teams or watch the meeting and participate from the classroom at ODFW’s Headquarters, 4034 Fairview Industrial Drive SE, Salem. 

Register in advance to receive the Teams meeting link. Public comments can be submitted before May 16 via the Public Engagement Questionnaire and there will be substantial time for discussion between ODFW staff and attendees during the May 16 meeting.

The meeting will be livestreamed and can be viewed here https://www.dfw.state.or.us/agency/budget/2025-27_budget_development.asp.

During the meeting, ODFW staff will present information about the 2025-27 budget development process and its strategic approach to developing an ARB. Staff will discuss the nuts and bolts of building the agency’s current service level budget based on statewide instructions and the primary factors driving the agency’s budget outlook. 

Staff will also present a few scenarios and strategies for funding the agency’s priorities for 2025-2027 and beyond, including a mix of new investments, potential cost reductions, and fee adjustments. During the meeting, ODFW will ask for attendee perspectives on the solutions and strategies that work best for our partners and the state’s fish, wildlife and their habitats. 

After incorporating feedback from the meeting and other public input, ODFW will present a proposed ARB to the Fish and Wildlife Commission at their June 14 meeting in Chiloquin for final approval. 

That Commission-approved 2025-27 ARB then goes to the Governor for her consideration. The Governor presents her recommended budget to the 2025 Oregon State Legislature which has the final authority to adopt ODFW’s budget.
