Estuary and Salmon Restoration Program (ESRP) » Grants

2018 ESRP Grant Competition is Open!

The Estuary and Salmon Restoration Program is excited to launch our 2018 grant competition season!  We are so encouraged and inspired by all the work happening around Puget Sound and we want to hear about your project. 

This year, we have 5 separate grant offerings for project sponsors: Restoration and Protection Grants, a Small Grants, Learning, and a streamlined Portfolio Project process for both learning and restoration projects.  Portfolio projects are those that have successfully competed and been awarded ESRP funds in past grant rounds (at an advanced stage in their project development) with a funding need to advance to the final stage of their project.  All these projects are reviewed and ranked in order to create one single integrated ESRP investment plan. 

We are in the process of developing our program report and outreach materials for legislative audiences.

We are excited to continue this important work with local partners to restore Puget Sound's nearshore. Please let us know if you need any information about this opportunity. Thank you!

Sincerely,

The ESRP Team
