outdoor user receives from these
programs. Whitetail deer, wild turkey,
black bear, striped bass, and
numerous sport fish populations were
restored by these programs. Boat
ramps and handicap accessible
fishing piers improved access to
fisheries resources. The acquisition of
lands for wildlife management areas
enabled states to greatly increase
wildlife populations for both game
and non-game species. In turn, taxes
from dollars spent by hunters on
hunting equipment and ammunition
enabled states to buy more land. The
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Federal Aid Program to the states is
known to be one of the most efficient
and effective Federal programs in
the nation.

What management formula lead to
these successes?
These programs operate as true
partnerships. Program funding and
administration take place at the
Federal level. Project planning and
development take placejointly.
Resource management decisions are
made at the state level. Funds are
distributed between states and
territories using formulas based on
land area and numbers of users. Most
of the funds are permanent indefinite
appropriations which allows the
states to plan projects and be assured
that funding will be there in
latter years.

How can someone apply for Federal
Aid Funds?
They can't. These funds are
specifically appropriated by Congress
to the states. State agencies apply to
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for
funds to accomplish specific projects.
Service Federal Aid employees
review the projects for substantiality
in character and design and approve
funding. Partners, such as
conservation groups and local
governments, participate in some of
the programs with state agencies.
