Grants

Large Project Grant

The Reservoir Fisheries Habitat Partnership (RFHP) annually provides grants to partially fund large-scale reservoir fisheries habitat enhancement projects. The grants are funded by the National Fish Habitat Partnership through the America's Conservation Enhancement Act which was passed in fall 2021. Project funds are distributed to the Reservoir Fish Habitat Partnership for projects addressing reservoir fisheries habitat impairments. Proposed projects can be focused on habitat issues in the reservoir proper and/or in watersheds above the reservoir and/or tailwaters below. RFHP typically awards 5-8 grants annually in the $10,000-$75,000 range. Deadline to submit a proposal for FY2022 is May 1, 2021. For more information on proposal guidelines and project criteria for proposals visit the Project Guidelines/Request for Proposals.
