2006 - 2007 Budget plan by program

Federal Funds


The DNR will deposit an estimated $38.3 million for FY 2006-07. Federal receipts can be the result of research and special project agreements, grants for boat and water safety, trail development, fire prevention and protection, preservation and protection of Lake Superior coastal resources, and expense reimbursements following a FEMA-declared natural disaster.

Federal funds can vary significantly between biennia due to federal disaster aid from unforeseen catastrophic events or the discontinuation of federal programs.

The $38.3 million does not include $36.9 million in federal receipts associated with the federal sport fish and wildlife restoration programs, which are deposited to the Game and Fish Fund. It also does not include $2.5 million in federal receipts associated with Land and Water Conservation (LAWCON), which are deposited to the Land and Water Conservation Account


Authorized expenditure of federal funds is for purposes that are prescribed in federal and state law and meet the DNR's goals and strategies documented in the DNR Strategic Conservation Agenda and other strategic planning documents.
