Heritage Fund Expenditures

Description: 

Arizona voters created the Heritage Fund in 1990, designating up to $20 million a year from lottery ticket sales for parks, trails, natural areas, historic preservation, and a full range of wildlife conservation activities. Each year the allocation is split equally between Arizona State Parks and the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Grants from the Heritage Fund support a variety of projects in each of Arizona’s 15 counties.

State Parks uses the money for a variety of purposes including land acquisition, trail maintenance, environmental education, and historic preservation.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department spends its Heritage Fund dollars to recover threatened and endangered species, to help urban residents appreciate and coexist with our unique wildlife, to educate children about the environment, and to create new opportunities for outdoor recreation. Because the department receives no money from the state's General Fund like most other state agencies do to cover their operating budgets, income from the Heritage Fund is critical to recovering and sustaining Arizona’s unique native wildlife and to managing more than 800 native species.
