Important Information for Restoration Applications
The Regular Grant Program offers responsive grants across the state for competitive proposals based on local ecological priorities. We’re proud that Oregon is a recipient of significant 2014 Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Funds (PCSRF) dollars. This is a testament to the great work completed in support of salmon and steelhead habitat in Oregon. NOAA’s top priority for PCSRF dollars, and OWEB’s grant award in support of that priority, is to fund on-the-ground restoration for salmon and steelhead habitat.
OWEB encourages applications to restore and enhance upland habitat, native wildlife habitat, water quality, and native fish habitat. Watershed restoration from ridge-top to ridge-top is an important component of OWEB’s mission. While there is no OWEB preference for salmon and steelhead restoration projects, we have a unique opportunity to increase the investment in salmon and steelhead habitat projects this year because of the increased amount of PCSRF grant funds.
Eligible projects for OWEB grants using PCSRF dollars are limited to:
If you have projects that meet these requirements, you can help OWEB invest PCSRF funding in your project:
