Proposed federal conservation bill, Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (RAWA) is anticipated to direct $100 million annually to Tribal fish and wildlife efforts.

Erin Tapahe, reporter for Tribal Business News, wrote:

Bipartisan federal legislation could dramatically reshape the funding available to tribal nations for wildlife conservation efforts.

The proposed Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would for the first time give tribes a direct line of federal funding for their natural resources departments to perform fish and wildlife work.

Importantly, as the bicameral bill is currently proposed, it would inject nearly $100 million annually into Indian Country to help fuel tribal conservation work on the 140 million acres of land they control.
