Grants of up to $3,000 to non-profits in multiple U.S. states that work to raise awareness regarding the importance of native trout. The purposes of these grants are to restore and recover the 15 remaining western native trout species and sub-species across their historic range by providing financial assistance and human resources for locally-led, on-the-ground projects with the highest impact.

The Western Native Trout Initiative (WNTI) covers an area of 1.75 M square miles and includes representation by 12 western states, 5 federal agencies, sovereign tribes, and private conservation groups. Since 2006, WNTI has helped to invest over $16 million of private and public funding toward 78 projects that have reconnected, restored and enhanced over 430 stream miles; and helped complete over 500 native trout population assessments to guide collaborative watershed planning and management.

In addition to directing and leveraging approximately $600,000 in federal funding annually toward large, on-the-ground native trout conservation projects, each summer WNTI accepts proposals to help ‘jump start’ or complete smaller, high-impact efforts by community groups to restore or recover western native trout in the rivers, lakes and watersheds where they remain.

Projects considered for funding under the Small Grants Program may include riparian or instream habitat restoration, barrier removal or construction, population or watershed assessments needed for prioritization and planning, water leases or acquisitions to improve instream flows, and native trout community outreach and education.
