Landowner Relations Program
 

The Landowner Relations Program has primary responsibility within the Department for working with the state's private landowners. The program has grown significantly in recent years offering new alternatives and larger projects to all the cooperators. The focus on offering more to our partners requires capitalizing on outside funding sources that have allowed the LRP to more than quadruple the budget of the program. The current program effectively implements more than $2 million annually toward a variety of habitat and land conservation projects.

To find out more about the Landowner Relations Program view our program overview.

For information including funding sources, eligibility requirements, project information and contact information, select a program listed below.

New! See the video produced by our partners at the Arizona Lottery describing how lottery dollars (through the voter-approved Heritage Fund) help support cooperative work with landowners to benefit wildlife and outdoor recreation.

New! Visit our new web-based mapping tool that provides hunters, anglers, and other outdoor recreationists with access information to and through private lands at azaccessmap.com.

New! – Another method, which some sportsmen successfully use to gain access across or to private lands, is to directly ask the landowner for permission. A personal visit is usually more effective than a phone call. Ask permission in advance and at a convenient time for the landowner. Go prepared with a Respect Program Courtesy Card.
