RICHMOND, VA— The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) is happy to announce the 2019 recipients of the Virginia Wildlife Grant Program. Since the program’s inception in 2014, DGIF has received over $1.5 million dollars of submissions and has been able to award over $310,000, impacting over 50,000 youth.
The Virginia Wildlife Grant Program provides a funding source to non-profits, schools and government organizations with a focus on connecting youth to the outdoors. The program is a partnership effort between the DGIF and The Wildlife Foundation of Virginia (WFV), and is funded through the sales of merchandise, private contributions and fundraising events. This year, owner of Richmond Ford, Ron Kody, supported the Grant Program again in the Richmond
Area to connect youth through fishing and wildlife viewing to honor his dad’s outdoor legacy.
In 2019, the Virginia Wildlife Grant Program continued to support the national initiative, called “R3” to recruit and retain youth into the outdoors through recreational opportunities like archery, fishing, wildlife viewing, etc.
This year, DGIF awarded almost $62,000 to support 25 projects impacting 5,800 youth. Almost 20% of the projects focus on at-risk youth through supporting intellectual, and physical and financial needs. Focusing on engaging female, Hispanic, and urban populations is a priority of the Virginia Wildlife Grant Program. Activities supported through the grant are archery, boating, fishing, hunting, recreational shooting, and wildlife viewing.
