Grants to Oregon individual landowners, landowner groups, government agencies, and conservation organizations to enhance wildlife habitat and improve hunting access on private lands. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. While projects may be on either public or private lands, preference will be given to projects on private lands.

Some examples of projects that have been approved and implemented to date include development of wetland habitat, noxious weed control, improving wildlife forage on private lands, developing water in arid regions, riparian fencing, seeding after wildfire, hunting leases, land acquisition, and seasonal road management.

Access & Habitat project applications (or project proposals) are submitted by individual landowners, groups of landowners, conservation organizations, and government agencies.

Before filling out an Access & Habitat grant application, project applicants are asked to contact the ODFW Regional Coordinator in the vicinity of the proposed project. The Regional Coordinator will give applicants advice on planning their projects and help maximize their chance of being awarded a grant. Completed applications should be submitted to the Regional Coordinator.

The Regional Coordinator will then forward the project application to the corresponding Regional Advisory Council and convene a meeting of the Council to review the project. Project applicants are asked to participate in this meeting in order to respond to any questions the Council members may have, and to know first-hand the Council’s review decisions.

Please keep in mind that project implementation may not begin prior to the signing of a grant agreement. It typically takes about four (4) months for the project review and grant development processes to occur. Consider your project timeframe and plan ahead.
