Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program

Title IX of the Commerce, Justice, State Appropriations Act (Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Account) of 2000 appropriated funds to the Secretary of the Interior to provide grants to States and U.S. Territories to enhance fish and wildlife conservation and restoration.  This Act provided for $50 million in FY 2001 by creating and authorizing a subaccount under the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act for a Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program (WCRP), a formula-based apportionment to the States and Territories similar to that in the existing Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration programs.  These funds were to be used for wildlife conservation, wildlife conservation education, and wildlife-associated recreation projects.
