Dept. of the Interior - National Fish Passage Program. Deadline: 12/30/22. $2M Available.
FY22 National Fish Passage Program
The National Fish Passage Program (NFPP) is a voluntary program that provides direct technical and financial assistance to partners. The program works in partnership to provide fish (and other aquatic organisms) passage and restore aquatic connectivity for the benefit of Federal trust resources. In doing so, the program aims to maintain or increase fish populations in order to improve ecosystem resiliency and to provide quality fishing experiences for the American people. Activities that restore fish passage also support the modernization of country’s infrastructure such as road culverts, bridges, and water diversions. Example project types include dam removals, culvert replacements, and the installation of fishways. The NFPP is delivered through Fish and Aquatic Conservation (FAC) Offices across all States and territories. FAC staff coordinate with project partners, stakeholders, and other Service programs to identify and collaboratively implement projects within Regional priority areas. Project work plans are developed strategically, in coordination with partners, and with substantial involvement from FAC staff. Projects must be based upon sound scientific principles, advance the Service mission, and promote biological diversity. FAC and Service strategic plans inform the types of projects funded under this opportunity. Applicants seeking funding under this program should review the FAC strategic plan and also contact the regional NFPP Coordinator that corresponds to the location of the project for additional information on regional priorities prior to submitting an application for funding. Contacts are listed at end of announcement.
