Forum Funding- FY25 RFP Open Now

Since its recognition as an FHP in 2012, the Forum has received funding through NFHP (via the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)) to advance shared goals of protecting, restoring, and enhancing fish habitat – with the Forum’s specific focus on anadromous fish populations in California.

The Forum will award an estimated $250,000-$350,000 in FY2025 for projects that advance its mission. This amount is based on previous funding received from the NFHP for this purpose. The exact amount of funding available varies annually and is not known currently. To fund a diverse portfolio of projects, strong project proposals that request less than $100,000 are preferred. However, proposals of particular merit may be funded at a higher level, at the Forums discretion.

Notification of awards will be made in the summer of 2024, and funds are expected to be awarded in the summer of 2025. Please note that this funding is linked to the federal budget. If you have any questions, please contact the Forum Coordinator.
