Great Lakes Basin Fish Habitat Partnership, Deadline Oct. 14

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service anticipates receiving a combination of base funded appropriations and the Administration’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in FY 2012 to support the Great Lakes Basin Fish Habitat Partnership (Partnership) and its efforts to complete on-the-ground, fish habitat protection, restoration, and enhancement projects. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Partnership recognize that a substantial amount of the protection, restoration and enhancement of fish habitat will be done at the local level by local watershed associations, municipalities, tribes, states and non-governmental organizations. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Partnership will work with organizations to encourage local conservation actions that fit within the Partnership’s Strategic Plan priorities.

Focus Areas:
Fish habitat protection and restoration, specific to one or more of the following:
Tributary stream restoration or protection to improve:

  • Fish and aquatic species passage
  • Riparian habitat
  • Large woody debris
  • Water temperatures
  • Natural stream flow functions
  • Natural stream channel form
  • Coastal and connecting channel wetland restoration, enhancement and protection
  • Connecting channel restoration or protection to improve:
  • Fish and aquatic species passage
  • Riparian habitat

Eligibility:
GLBFHP funding requests should range between $10,000 and $200,000. Larger project requests can be submitted and will be considered if additional funding becomes available. We anticipate funding approximately 8 projects, averaging $50,000 to $75,000.
Projects must be within the Great Lakes watershed.
States, tribes, tribal authorities, local governments and non-profits can apply. Federal agencies can also apply, but might not be eligible for all funding sources.
Match and partner contributions are encouraged. In-kind and federal match is allowed.
