The Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937, now known as the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act, was approved by Congress on September 2, 1937, and began functioning July 1, 1938. The purpose of this Act has been to provide funding for the selection, restoration, rehabilitation, and improvement of wildlife habitat, wildlife management research, and the distribution of information produced by the projects. The Act was amended on October 23, 1970, to include funding for hunter safety programs and the development or the operation and maintenance of firearm and archery ranges.

The Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program’s (WSFR) mission is to work through partnerships to conserve and manage fish and wildlife, and their habitats, for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations.
