CWD Response Plan

The first draft of the CWD Response Plan was made available on this website for the public to review and provide input from September 2019 to February 2020. Game Commission staff received over 350 public comments on the draft CWD Response Plan during that time. In addition, the Game Commission conducted various surveys to better gauge public support of management strategies proposed in the draft CWD Response Plan. All public comments and data from surveys have been analyzed and were considered during the revision process. Below is the revised CWD Response Plan, which was presented to the Board of Commissioners on April 6, 2020, for tentative approval. This revised Response Plan is available for public comment from April 7, 2020 until May 7, 2020. Public comments will again be reviewed and incorporated into the final document before it is presented to the Board of Commissioners for final approval in May 2020. Public comments can be sent via email to or via mail at Attn: CWD Comments, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
