FY 2016 Appropriation

This line item accounts for spending on studies done in cooperation with federal agencies, local government agencies, or other entities. The agencies supply the funding and DWR provides field teams to conduct the studies. Therefore, FTEs can fluctuate up or down depending on the number of projects.

Funding History
Appropriation Overview

During the 2015 General Session, the Legislature appropriated for Fiscal Year 2016, $18,479,400 from all sources for Cooperative Agreements. This is a 6.4 percent increase from Fiscal Year 2015 revised estimated amounts from all sources.

Funding from Contracts

This measure tracks the funding contracted through this line item. Most of the research and data collected benefit both the division and the party providing the funds.

$ cooperative agr.

The largest contributions have come from the Watershed Initiative, BLM, US Fish and Wildlife Services, Washington County, Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining, and Ruby Pipeline Co. Over 80% of the funding is used for wildlife habitat improvement projects.

The Legislature appropriates these funds, but since they are not "state funds" receipt of the funds depends on non-state entities. The division can only spend what funding it receives in this line item each fiscal year.
