Grants to Oregon and California nonprofit organizations, government agencies, special districts, schools, and universities for projects that restore salmon habitats in eligible regions. Applicants are required to submit a pre-proposal prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support the planning, design, and monitoring of recovery projects that restore habitats or otherwise provide direct benefit to this endangered species.

Projects must be located in the mainstem Klamath River Basin and tributaries between Iron Gate Dam (IGD) at River Mile (RM) 190 and the Klamath River mouth. With the exception of the Trinity River, all tributaries between IGD and the Klamath River mouth are eligible for funding through the Grant Program. This region is located in the states of Oregon and California.

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is pleased to announce the Klamath River Coho Habitat Restoration Program (Grant Program) Request for Proposals (RFP) to enhance the survival and recovery of the Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast (SONCC) coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), a species listed as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act. 

The goal of this competitive Grant Program is to support restoration activities that have a direct benefit to SONCC coho salmon and/or design, planning, or monitoring projects that can demonstrate direct benefit for coho salmon. All projects must comply with the 2019 Biological Opinion prepared by NMFS.

The following project types will be given the highest priority:

  • Access improvement and barrier removal projects. 
  • Projects that improve habitat and access to coldwater refugia. 
  • Instream habitat enhancement and protection projects
  • Water transactions and conservation projects

For examples of potential projects, see

Proposals that provide the largest benefit to SONCC coho salmon will be priorities for available funding. 

Although non-federal matching funds are optional, projects with matching funds will be given higher priority consideration.
