Budget Division

Budget and Contracting

The budget division is responsible for the formulation, execution, and tracking of the office budget, including that of the field offices. We contract with and provide funds to other federal, state, tribal and private agencies for on-the-ground projects, research, and educational programs. Funding sources include Endangered Species, Habitat Conservation and Restoration, Environmental Contaminants, reimbursable and emergency response, such as oil spills and fire. http://budget.fws.gov/

Grants and Cooperative Agreements

Grants and cooperative agreements are important tools used to assist others in their efforts to enhance and restore habitat for fish, wildlife and plants. Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office staff manage a large number of cooperative agreements and grants which cover a variety of programs, including Partners for Fish and Wildlife, Jobs in the Woods, and Greenspaces. Notice funding distribution for these programs in the attached chart.

Emergency Response

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Service Office in Portland is the primary Fish and Wildlife Service office in Oregon for responding to emergency contaminants issues, including oil, chemical and pesticide spills. Budget personnel are responsible for tracking costs and submitting cost documentation packages related to these issues. Please refer to our Contaminants web page.
