Funding - Habitat Restoration and Recovery 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, assessment, and species recovery projects in the state of Washington. We distribute a “Notice of Funding Availability” document each year to inform as many people as possible about partnering opportunities. This document highlights opportunities to work with local offices of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore habitats that benefit the Nation’s fish and wildlife resources as well as facilitate community education. Technical assistance is provided to all funded projects.
In 2014, our Notice of Funding Availability process helped us to work with our partners to identify important ecosystem restoration and environmental education projects across Washington state. We funded 24 projects in 2014, totaling over $730,000 in USFWS funds. For more information on these projects, please see this summary document:
