Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB)

Salmon recovery grants are used to restore degraded salmon habitat and protect existing, high-quality habitat. These twin activities are aimed at increasing the amount and overall health of the places salmon live, which will increase the number of salmon. Since 1999, the Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) has been distributing state and federal money to protect and restore salmon habitat. Honoring the “Washington Way” of ground-up salmon recovery decision-making, the SRFB works closely with local watershed groups known as lead entities to identify projects for funding, and regional organizations to prioritize funding. The Salmon Recovery Funding Board provides funding for elements necessary to achieve overall salmon recovery, including habitat projects and activities that result in sustainable and measurable benefits for salmon and other fish species.
