BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The U.S. Department of the Interior says Montana will receive more than $29 million in funding for critical state conservation and outdoor recreation projects.
KULR-TV reported Tuesday that more than $9 million will go to Sport Fish Restoration and more than $21 million will go to Wildlife Restoration funds.
The funds will be distributed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The funds are generated through hunting, shooting, boating, small engine fuel and sport fishing tackle taxes.
