Applying for Funding
To apply for SRFB funding, eligible project sponsors must first submit a local pre-application for consideration. The pre-application process is designed to provide early feedback to applicants on how to develop their projects. Project applicants will present project concepts to the Regional Technical Team (typically in March of each year). To continue past the pre-application phase, applicants will work closely with the Project Funding Coordinator to develop and submit a draft application. This application will be followed by a draft scoring meeting, project site tours, revision cycles, and a final scoring meeting.
These steps are designed to ensure the best projects are ultimately implemented. After the final ranking meeting, the Lead Entity Committee submits a ranked list for review by the Snake River Salmon Recovery Board for SRFB funding consideration. Funding decisions have previously been announced by the SRFB in December of each year but given grant round schedule revisions, we expect funding announcements September moving forward.
