*Applicants Sought for Klamath River Coho Habitat Restoration Projects*
*Up to $1 million available for projects in 2018; Public RFP Webinar on May
8*

YREKA, Calif.* –* The Bureau of Reclamation, PacifiCorp and the National
Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in close coordination with NOAA
Fisheries, are seeking applications for funding to implement coho habitat
restoration projects within the Klamath River and its tributaries
downstream of Iron Gate Dam.

The joint Request for Proposals (RFP) will make available up to $1 million
in grants during 2018 through Reclamation’s Klamath River Coho Habitat
Restoration Program (up to $500,000, contingent upon appropriations) and
PacifiCorp’s Klamath River Coho Enhancement Fund ($500,000). The
pre-proposal deadline is Friday, June 1. The RFP is available on NFWF’s
website at http://www.nfwf.org/klamathbasin/klamathcoho/Pages/2018combi
nedrfp.aspx.

Reclamation, PacifiCorp, NOAA Fisheries, and NFWF will host an RFP Webinar
for the public, which will include an overview of the programs, details
regarding the types of projects that will be given priority, and an
overview of the proposal process and requirements. The Webinar will be held:

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 from 10 am to 12 noon PST
Register for the Webinar here:

The program aims to fund projects that meet the requirements outlined in
the 2013 Biological Opinion on Reclamation’s Klamath Project Operations and
to achieve conservation objectives contained in PacifiCorp’s Klamath
Hydroelectric Project Interim Operations Habitat Conservation Plan for Coho
Salmon. Both programs enhance the survival and recovery of coho salmon in
the Klamath River, where coho are listed as threatened pursuant to the
Endangered Species Act.

Successful proposals will provide access to cold water habitat, create or
enhance instream habitat, remove barriers or otherwise improve access, or
provide water conservation. Regardless of the project type, successful
proposals must demonstrate direct benefits for coho salmon. The geographic
focus of these programs is within the mainstem Klamath River and
tributaries below Iron Gate Dam.

Since 2009, PacifiCorp and Reclamation have contributed a combined $6.3
million toward habitat restoration for coho salmon in the Klamath River.
