Streamflow restoration implementation grants

We have launched a grant program for Streamflow Restoration implementation projects. The first round of grants will focus on projects that improve streamflows and instream resources. Future funding cycles under this 15-year grant program will be based on a rule currently under development.

The grant cycle opened Oct. 1, 2018, and closes at 5 p.m. Oct. 31, 2018. Applications will be accepted through Ecology’s Administration of Grants & Loans (EAGL) system.

Funding is available statewide, but priority will be given to watersheds and areas addressed in the law and basins with Endangered Species Act-listed fish species. Eligible applicants are limited to public entities (state and local agencies, and special use districts) and non-profit organizations. Eligible projects include water acquisition, water storage, altered water management or infrastructure, and riparian and fish habitat improvement.

We developed interim guidance for project proponents seeking funding in this first round. The interim guidance will be replaced by a rule for future funding cycles.

Funding cycle

  • Amount of funding available: Up to $20 million
  • Funding allocated:
  • Grant award limit: No set limits
  • Amount of matching funds required: No match is required, but applications that include other funding sources will receive additional consideration.
