conservation, and restoration of sport fishery resources.

The Sport Fish Restoration Grant Program (SFR) is funded by revenues collected from excise taxes on sport fishing equipment, electric motors and sonar, import duties on fishing tackle, yachts and pleasure craft, and a portion of gasoline tax attributable to motorboats and small engines.

Revenues are deposited into and apportioned from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund.

SFR provides funding to restore, conserve, manage, or enhance sport fish populations and the public use and benefits from these resources; to educate the public about aquatic resources; and to provide boating access to public waters.

Monies are apportioned annually following a legislatively established formula to each of the eligible participants (State fish and wildlife agencies).

Additional information about SFR is available at:

WSFRâ¿¿s mission is to work through partnerships to conserve and manage fish and wildlife and their habitats for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations.

WSFRâ¿¿s vision is of healthy, diverse, and accessible fish and wildlife populations that offer recreation, economic activity, and other societal benefits, in addition to sustainable ecological functions.

WSFRâ¿¿s guiding principle is that society benefits from conservation-based management of fish and wildlife and their habitats and opportunities to use and enjoy them.

The Sport Fish Restoration Grant Program aligns with WSFRâ¿¿s mission, vision, and guiding principle, and supports three of the Department of the Interiorâ¿¿s priorities including:1) Creating a conservation stewardship legacy second only to Teddy Roosevelt;2) Utilizing our natural resources; and3) Restoring trust with our local communities.
