Tyler, TX — Texas Parks and Wildlife are seeking corporate partnerships for funding to maintain services. The agency is focusing on continuing to build customer base.
One proposal can make that happen.
"We had to develop rules for those sponsorships, so far the last few months we have been developing those rules, and now we are closer to going and seeking those sponsorships," said Bill Smart, Park Superintendent.
Agency officials say they have suffered budget cuts of $114 million, or 17.6%, in recent years legislature struggled with $27 billion shortfall.
The agency plans to offer companies use of their logo and brand in exchange for revenue to meet their financial challenges, and to accomplish their goal.
Business partnerships can help Texas Parks and Wildlife raise money by obtaining a request proposal which includes rules and guidelines for funding.
