Summary
The Fisheries Restoration Grant Program (FRGP) was established in 1981 in response to rapidly declining populations of wild salmon and steelhead trout and deteriorating fish habitat in California. This competitive grant program has invested millions of dollars to support projects from sediment reduction to watershed education throughout coastal California.

Eligible projects for this solicitation are those for implementation or design projects that restore, enhance, or protect salmonid habitat in anadromous watersheds or projects that support implementation projects through planning, outreach, and/or education. Projects can include multiple project types. There are 3 project types.

Priority 1: Projects that restore, enhance, or protect salmonid habitat in anadromous watersheds through implementation or design projects that lead to implementation. Approximately 65% of the PCSRF grant award will fund Priority One Projects.

Priority 2: Projects that consist of watershed-scale or larger effectiveness monitoring (e.g., intensively monitored watershed project). Such projects provide monitoring of habitat restoration actions at the watershed or larger scales and the physical, biological and chemical. response, and projects conducting watershed-scale or larger restoration planning (e.g., strategic action plans). Projects that monitor status and trends and directly contribute to population viability assessments for ESA -listed anadromous salmonids will be administered through a separate solicitation process outside of this 2020 FHR Solicitation. Approximately 25% of the PCSRF grant award will fund Priority Two Projects.

Priority 3: Projects that support implementation projects through planning, outreach, and/or education. Approximately 10% of the PCSRF grant award will fund Priority Three Projects.
