The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will make every effort to provide accessibility for all Washington residents if it does not:
- Result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the program, activity, or facility;
- Create an undue financial or administrative burden; or
- Violate state or federal law.
All requests must be in writing and received by WDFW 20 days prior to the event or activity. This notification is necessary to ensure the required arrangements are made available with no cost to the person.
Requests for access will be reviewed by the Civil Rights Compliance Coordinator or their designee and approved by the agency. Applicants who are not satisfied with the outcome of a request may appeal. The agency will make every effort to respond to the appeal within 45 days of receipt.
