The U.S. Department of the Interior has announced the share of funding states will receive through the Wildlife Restoration Program and Sport Fish Restoration Program. The funds come from excise taxes on items including firearms, bows, ammunition and sport fishing tackle.
Indiana will receive more than $13.3 million for the 2017 fiscal year from the Wildlife Restoration Fund and over $4.3 million for 2017 through the Sportfish Restoration Fund.
U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke says "for nearly eight decades, the nation’s hunters and anglers have generated billions of dollars to protect wildlife and habitat simply by purchasing items that help them engage in the outdoor activities they enjoy. Their support has helped state wildlife agencies protect our country’s environmental legacy for future generations of hunters, fishers, recreationalists, and conservationists."
