Salmon Recovery Funding Board Grant Program

Over 200 projects funded to date!

The 2023 Salmon Recovery Grants program is closed!

Check back at the begining of 2024 for the next grant round.

Salmon recovery grants are used to restore degraded salmon habitat and protect existing, high-quality habitat. These activities are aimed at increasing the amount and overall health of the places salmon live, with the goal of increasing the number, productivity, distribution and diversity of Lower Columbia salmon and steelhead.


Projects may include the actual habitat used by salmon and the land and water that support sediment, stream flow, and forest processes important to salmon.

RSVP for the February 15 Grant Round Workshop and schedule a pre-proposal meeting by contacting Steve West.
