The WWRI is a public-private partnership between Ecotrust, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The partnership focuses on restoring the major ecological processes critical to the natural function of entire watersheds. The WWRI directs funds and resources to select watersheds and restoration activities that provide the greatest opportunity for the recovery of native, anadromous salmon populations across land ownerships.
Approximately $1.2 million will be available in the 2014 funding cycle for projects within the WWRI’s Priority Basins. Please note that some changes have been made to geographic priorities, and are described in the RFP. The deadline for applications is January 9th, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. PST and awards will be announced in late March 2014.
To learn more about eligibility and to download the RFP and application form, visit the WWRI website at www.ecotrust.org/wwri.
