Applications are currently being accepted.
We are accepting applications between:
Start date: Jan 30, 2020
End date: Apr 30, 2020
We have published our final streamflow restoration grant guidance, and we have now extended the application deadline due to some technical problems with our grant application system. We will be accepting applications until 5 p.m. on Apr. 30, 2020. At this time, we are prioritizing required pre-application meetings and cannot guarantee that last minute requests will be met.
Extension applies only to 2020 grant deadline:
This announcement pertains solely and exclusively to the establishment of the revised deadline of 5 p.m. on April 30, 2020 for Streamflow Restoration Competitive Grants. This extension does not impact any other activities, including any other state or federal grant program or the planning work being conducted under Chapter 90.94 RCW.
Funding is available for the following entities:
Eligible applicants are limited to tribal governments with reservation lands or treaty rights within Washington, public entities (state and local governments and quasi-governments), and non-profit organizations.
Funding is available statewide, but priority is given to watersheds and areas specified in Streamflow Restoration (Chapter 90.94 RCW). Projects that would quantitatively improve streamflows are the highest single priority factor for funding in this grant round.
Eligible projects include water right acquisitions, water storage, altered water management or infrastructure, riparian and fish habitat improvements, watershed function, environmental monitoring, and feasibility studies.
Operation and maintenance costs are not eligible under this funding source.
