More than $2.9 billion has been generated for programs that benefit Minnesotans. Lottery proceeds help restore, enhance and protect high-quality habitat for Minnesota wildlife; fight invasive species; protect native species and improve air and water quality through the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, the Natural Resources Fund, and the Game & Fish Fund. A portion of every dollar played supports General Fund programs like education, public safety and health & human services.
