How to Submit a Project for Review

To have a project reviewed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, send an email to wgfd.hpp@wyo.gov with the following information:
  • Name of the project.           
  • Name of the proponent and the name of the entity submitting the project (if they are not the same).
  • Legal location of the project (township/range/section).
  • Description of the project.
  • Detailed map of the project area, including township, range and sections.
    • If submitting shapefiles (preferred), either send all the requisite file types as attachments (.dbf, .shp, .shx, .prj) or compress to a zipped file. Our email system cannot receive *.zip files, so the file extension must be changed.
  • Contact information for the recipient of the letter of review and any follow-up questions by HPP (email preferred).

HPP will review your project within 30 days and provide a letter of review.

Greater Sage-Grouse
Projects located within sage-grouse core/connectivity/winter concentration areas or within 2 miles of a non-core area sage-grouse lek, may need additional analysis for compliance with Sage-Grouse Executive Order 2019-3. If your project falls within these parameters, you may submit your project for review using the One Steppe Density and Disturbance Calculation Tool (DDCT) web application via the One Steppe webpage. A pdf with steps to help you get started can be downloaded here.  Exception requests may be submitted via the DDCT or can be submitted to wgfd.hpp@wyo.gov using this form.  Note: Starting in 2024, all exception requests will be need to be submitted through the DDCT as we will be discontinuing use of the Exception Request form.
