Projects

The Advisory Board on Dream Tags reviewed 24 proposals in its first-ever review cycle in 2012. 24 projects were proposed, and 10 were selected for funding. Since then, the team has reviewed other proposals as they have come in and selected some for funding. You can see the list of funded proposals below.

Funding for the projects comes from the sale of Dream Tags raffle tickets. This excellent program—supported entirely through the purchase of $5 raffle tickets—generates not only excitement about the chance of winning a Big Game tag but also money to support wildlife habitat restoration and improvement projects. With another desperately dry year looming, the loss of forage and water reserves, and inevitable wildfire, Dream Tags dollars are critical to protecting and restoring Nevada’s wildlife habitat. Your support of the Dream Tags program—through your raffle ticket purchases—made these projects possible. We couldn’t do it without you!
