Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, local and tribal governments, IHEs, and individuals for outreach projects involving the protection and restoration of watersheds and native fish and wildlife habitats. Projects may disseminate information or increase awareness of watershed protection efforts. Projects must also be directly tied to on-the-ground watershed and habitat protection and restoration initiatives.

Examples of eligible activities are those which:

-Engage Oregonians directly in activities that protect, restore, or monitor native fish or wildlife habitats or improve water quality or stream flow, and also increase awareness, knowledge, or skills regarding watershed restoration and protection.

-Provide professional development programs or training to those who implement specific activities that protect, restore, or monitor native fish or wildlife habitats or improve water quality or stream flow.

-Provide professional development or training to those who engage others (e.g., volunteer coordinators or teachers) in specific activities that protect, restore, or monitor native fish or wildlife habitats or improve water quality or stream flow.

-Provide information to landowners, community leaders, or other decision-makers to increase their awareness and understanding of, and participation in, watershed restoration and protection efforts. Examples include watershed restoration tours, coffee klatches or other landowner outreach efforts.

One Outreach grant proposal may contain several activities.

A grant applicant must be one of the following legal entities and have a FEIN number.
-Local or tribal government
-Nonprofit organization
-Institution for higher education
-individual (not eligible for indirect or administrative costs)

A state or federal agency may apply for funding only as a co-applicant with an eligible entity.

Examples of ineligible activities include:
-Recreational activities (boating, trail riding, archery, fly tying and casting, etc.) and lessons on outdoor skills (wilderness survival, basic fire starting, wild native edibles, etc.).
-In-classroom natural resources or environmental lessons that have no outdoor component that protects, restores, or monitors native fish or wildlife habitat or water quality/quantity.
-Work parties (e.g., planting or pulling weeds) that do not include components to increase awareness, knowledge, or skills of participants regarding watershed restoration and protection.
-General science fairs or symposia or other informational events not directly associated with efforts to protect, restore, or monitor native fish or wildlife habitats or water quality or stream flows.
-Proposals that aim to increase awareness, understanding or knowledge of low-impact development or other “green” activities, but that are not associated with efforts that protect, restore, or monitor native fish or wildlife habitats or water quality or stream flows.
-Stand-alone proposals for a website, brochure, interpretive signs, book, or other stand-alone outreach media. These outreach activities are eligible only if they are part of a larger set of eligible outreach activities.

The deadline for applications is November 1 by 5:00 PM. Applications must be submitted online through OGMS. Please note that applicants must obtain a username and password prior to applying.
