Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Oregon organizations for projects that protect and restore the habitats of endangered or threatened fish. Funding is intended to support projects that include engineering, project design, permitting, materials and supplies, monitoring, implementation, and outreach. Preference will be given to projects benefiting anadromous fish that are implemented within the funding source's service area.

Projects must clearly and succinctly articulate how the proposed project:

  • Includes priority actions described in a watershed assessment, conservation plan or recovery plan, and
  • Results in direct and immediate improvements to threatened or endangered anadromous fish habitat.

Preference will be given to projects where at least 80% of Blue Sky Habitat funding is used for on-the-ground restoration and preservation work, and project elements essential for on-the-groundwork.  On-the-ground restoration and preservation work, and project elements essential for on-the-ground work includes expenses for in-house personnel, contracted services, travel, and supplies and materials.

Projects will be scored on the following criteria:

  1. Undertakes or supports active habitat restoration that provides benefits to threatened or endangered anadromous fish.
  2. Recommended as a priority action in a watershed assessment, conservation plan or recovery plan and/or endorsed by independent, locally knowledgeable fisheries biologist.
  3. Demonstrates a qualified restoration team that has successfully completed projects with quantifiable outcomes. If restoration team history is limited, successfully demonstrates why project will be successful despite lack of track record.
  4. Demonstrates or advances strong technical and scientific design that addresses limiting habitat factors and provides quantifiable, measurable habitat benefits.
  5. Projects that have secured cash or in-kind support for this project, or that can demonstrate a track
    record of securing analogous support, will be scored higher. A minimum 1:1 ratio of Blue Sky Habitat
    funding to other funding is preferred. Preference will be given to projects where at least 80% of Blue
    Sky Habitat funding is used for on-the-ground restoration and preservation work, and project
    elements essential for on-the-groundwork. 
  6. Contains quantitative monitoring objectives and data collection, analysis and reporting schedule.
