Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW)
Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, local and state agencies and districts, private landowners, and Tribal governments for projects that improve fish migration in eligible regions. A Letter of Intent must be submitted for review and approval before submitting an application. Funding is intended for restoration and planning projects to remediate barriers to fish passage in salmon recovery regions and designated priority watersheds.
The duty of the Fish Barrier Removal Board (FBRB) is to identify and expedite the removal of impediments to anadromous fish that are caused by state and local roads and highways, and barriers owned by private parties. Grants are intended to leverage fish passage investments that have been made by the Washington Department of Transportation, forest industry, local governments, and other entities by funding barrier corrections near or in coordination with other fish passage investments.
Typical Restoration and Planning Activities that provide or improve fish migration upstream and downstream of road crossings, dams, and other in-stream barriers:

Itemized lists of eligible expenses may be found in Manual 5, Restoration Projects and Manual 7, Long-Term Obligations.
This RFP is for statewide projects and projects in designated priority watersheds (See Manual 22: Appendix A). The FBRB expects the participants in priority watersheds to continue implementing projects from their approved and prioritized lists in future grant rounds. If lead entities or salmon recovery regions want to propose new projects in their designated priority watersheds that are not included in the FBRB-approved lists, or to change their designated priority watersheds, they must work with their WDFW fish passage biologists to get FBRB approval.
