Western Washington Fisheries Resource Office Fisheries Restoration Opportunities- Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service

“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) Western Washington Fisheries Resource Office promotes a balanced approach toward aquatic resource stewardship that recognizes a need to conserve and manage self-sustaining populations and their habitats while providing quality recreational fishing. Proposals will only be considered for projects within the state of Washington. Proposals may include but are not limited to: fish passage, in-stream and riparian habitat restoration, introduced species management (including aquatic invasive species), and culture aspects of brood stock development, production and re-introduction. Project work plans are developed strategically, in coordination with partners, and with substantial involvement from Service field staff. Projects must advance our mission, promote biological diversity, and be based upon sound scientific biological principles. Program policy, plans, and/guidelines inform the types of projects funded under this opportunity. Applications seeking funding under this program should review the program plan/guidelines and also contact the Program Officer prior to submitting an application for funding. Project proposals requested between $1,000 and $50,000 are most attractive. There is no required match; however, 50 percent cost share is highly encouraged.
