Indiana gets $17 million for conservation projects

INDIANAPOLIS — The state of Indiana is receiving $17 million from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for conservation and recreation projects.

The money comes from excise taxes on fishermen, hunters and boaters. In recent years, funding from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program has supported restoration projects in Indiana including the Healthy Rivers Initiative, the National Archery in Schools Program, shooting ranges and public access sites for fishing and boating.

Another program that could receive money from the funding is the Indiana Department of Natural Resources' Go FishIN in the City program aimed at helping urban communities become connected to fishing opportunities. The program seeks to restore urban fishing sites.
