Agency Budget and Funding Sources

Agency Budget Overview

State agency budgets cover one biennium or two fiscal years. A biennium runs from July 1 of an odd-numbered year to June 30 of the next odd-numbered year (e.g, July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2023). The budget development process has three major phases: Agency Request, Governor's, and Legislatively Adopted budgets. The agency operates under the Legislatively Adopted Budget for the biennium.

Funding Sources

OWEB grants are funded from the Oregon Lottery, federal dollars, and salmon license plate revenue. OWEB also receives general fund appropriations to administer other programs, including wildfire recovery, drought resilience, the Oregon Agricultural Heritage Program (OAHP) and water acquisitions.
