Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Maine nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses, institutions of higher education, and government agencies for wildlife preservation programs. Funding is intended to promote fish habitat restoration and enhance fish passage. The goal of the program is to support the recovery of the Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment of Atlantic salmon. Proposals may include the following types of activities: feasibility studies; planning and assessments directly linked to restoration implementation; engineering design and permitting; on-the-ground implementation; monitoring; or a combination thereof.

 The highest priority will be given to habitat restoration proposals that:

  1. Propose activities consistent with priority habitat restoration actions identified in the 2019 “Recovery Plan for the Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)” and the “Species in the Spotlight Priority Actions: 2016-2020” 5-year action plan for Atlantic salmon. Applicants should describe how proposed actions contribute toward the goal of attaining 30,000 accessible and suitable habitat units within the three Salmon Habitat Recovery Units (SHRUs) in Maine. 
  2. Improve fish passage and restore connectivity between spawning and rearing habitat within federally designated Critical Habitat for the Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment. Project sites that contain river-specific stocks will be prioritized. Applicants proposing work within the following rivers should outline whether river-specific stocks of Atlantic salmon are present within the project site(s): Sheepscot; Penobscot, including lower river tributaries such as the Ducktrap; Narraguagus; Pleasant; Machias; East Machias; and Dennys Rivers. 
  3. Provide sustainable and lasting benefits for Atlantic salmon. Proposals that incorporate proven restoration techniques and focus on the removal of barriers will receive the highest priority. For example, dam removals will receive higher priority than the installation of structures that require operations and maintenance, such as fish ladders.
  4. Exhibit a capacity to manage concurrent habitat restoration projects over multiple years, and an ability to manage federal funds, maintain financial and administrative records, and fulfill reporting requirements.
