UPPER SALMON BASIN HABITAT IMPROVEMENT PLANNING AND COORDINATION
Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, Funding Opportunity BOR-PN-18-F033, 2018

The Lemhi, Pahsimeroi, and Upper Salmon rivers have been affected by legacy mining impacts, railroad construction, road construction, and agriculture. These anthropogenic influences, combined with out-of-subbasin sources of mortality, have resulted in high-risk findings for several varieties of salmon. The Bureau of Reclamation invites applicants to submit proposals that will build on the recently completed Integrated Rehabilitation Assessment (IRA) document. At a minimum, these proposals should address (1) completion of reach assessments and final reports for the Lemhi, Pahsimeroi, and Upper Salmon rivers; (2) identification, prioritization, and development of specific projects in these areas; (3) further development of analytical tools (e.g., reach level carrying capacity); (4) habitat monitoring coordination; (5) collection, analysis, management, and sharing of data; and (6) enhanced land owner coordination, outreach, and coordination of technical efforts. The awardee will coordinate and complete one or more reach assessments in each river as identified by the IRA while managing a team of disparate and sometimes competing interests. The award ceiling is $1.6M, and proposals are due by March 21, 2019. http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=311903
