Up to $65 million in funding is available under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for fish passage projects that will remove in-stream barriers. This funding will support projects that reopen migratory pathways and restore access to healthy habitat for fish.
In collaboration with NOAA, selected partners will use these grant funds to implement locally-led removals of dams and other in-stream barriers to rebuild sustainable fisheries, contribute to the recovery of threatened and endangered species, enhance watershed health, and improve economic vitality.
Eligible applicants include institutions of higher education, non-profits, commercial (for profit) organizations, U.S. territories, and state, local, and Native American tribal governments.
Proposals must be received through Grants.gov by 11:59 PM Eastern time on August 15, 2022.
