9. - Recommend funding arrangements that pool federal, state, and private funds.
Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 11
For example, recommendations might:
- Create a new partnership between state and federal agencies, equipment manufacturers and retailers to collect manufacturers’ rebates as funding for wildlife habitat and enhanced outdoor recreation. Funds could go to state wildlife and access projects or programs or to a hunting foundation. The arrangement could involve a widely-recognized logo sticker used at retail stores to indicate the products and rebates and promote positive publicity and satisfaction for manufacturers and consumers. An example is the current use of “Smokey Bear” approved camping equipment.
- Expand the allowable uses of State Wildlife Grants and new grant programs to include communication and education projects and programs that are ranked highly as state wildlife conservation priorities.
