Grants to Colorado and New Mexico agencies, nonprofits, IHEs, schools, and special districts for conservation projects related to the headwaters of the Rio Grande. Funding is intended to improve and maintain headwater streams in order to preserve the habitats of various fish and wildlife.
This grant program will provide funding to projects that produce measurable outcomes for species of conservation concern in the riparian corridors of the headwaters region of the Rio Grande. This region includes the main stem and headwater tributaries of the Rio Grande in Colorado’s San Luis Valley and northern New Mexico, as well as the headwaters of the Rio Chama, Jemez River, and Rio Puerco.
Priority projects will address the leading factors in aquatic species decline such as habitat alteration, environmental change and invasive species. Maintaining healthy headwater streams can help store water upstream and provide security for water users, fish, and wildlife downstream. Projects benefiting one or more of the following species are priorities for funding.
Priority species include Rio Grande cutthroat trout, Rio Grande chub, Rio Grande sucker and North American beaver.
