Funding - Habitat Restoration Activities

 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Washington Fish and Wildlife Office (WFWO) is seeking information on current and future proposed fish and wildlife habitat restoration, education, and assessment projects in the state of Washington. We distribute a “Notice of Funding Availability” document each year to inform as many people as possible about habitat restoration partnering opportunities. This document highlights opportunities to work with local offices of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore habitats and benefit the Nation’s fish and wildlife resources as well as facilitate community education. Technical assistance is provided to all funded projects.

If you would like to work with us to develop a project, please read the Notice of Funding Availability document. Then, contact the appropriate biologist to discuss your project. Please return the summary form to us by the deadline noted in the information. Forms can be emailed to us at wfwoctap@fws.gov and to your USFWS contact. Projects may consist of restoration, recovery, assessment, or education. Priority will, however, be placed on “on-the-ground” projects that restore or enhance fish and wildlife and/or their habitats, with emphasis placed on well-planned projects benefiting federally listed/candidate species and their habitats or improving listed species numbers. Additional emphasis will be placed on projects that work toward a published species recovery goal.
