Grant Opportunities


Salmon recovery grants are awarded by the Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) to protect and/or restore salmon habitat. The minimum funding level is $5,000 and there is no maximum for requests. Applicants must provide money or resources to match 15% or more of the grant.

The SRFB grant review process is coordinated by Lead Entities, like the Snohomish Basin Salmon Recovery Forum (SBSRF), which are local organizations that solicit projects from their geographic areas, organize technical and community reviews of the proposals, and present the best of them to the SRFB for approval. Successful proposals will support recovery strategies identified in the Snohomish River Basin Salmon Conservation Plan (view plan (PDF)) (view appendices).
