Grants of up to $40,000 to Oregon organizations for projects to protect and restore the habitats of endangered or threatened fish across the State. Funding is intended to support projects implemented in the Funding Source's service area that include engineering, project design, permitting, materials and supplies, monitoring, implementation, and outreach.

The Blue Sky Habitat Fund awards funding for habitat restoration projects that benefit endangered anadromous fish. Projects must be in or near a Pacific Power service area. (For a map of the Pacific Power service area, see Grant Coverage Areas below.)

Strong preference will be given to projects that clearly and succinctly articulate how the proposed project a) includes priority actions described in a watershed assessment, conservation plan or recovery plan and b) results in direct and immediate improvements to threatened or endangered anadromous fish habitat.

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. Includes cash or in-kind matching funds. Projects with secured match or those that can demonstrate a track record of securing analogous match funds will score higher.

6. Contains quantitative monitoring objectives and data collection, analysis and reporting schedule.
