CRR Grants for Hatchery-Associated Projects

Hatchery-associated production (HAP) projects include the artificial production or rearing of salmonids. Cowlitz Restoration and Recovery (CRR) grant funding is available for on-the-ground HAP projects, or activities that lead to on-the-ground projects, aimed at reintroduction and recovery of Endangered Species Act-listed (listed) Cowlitz salmonid populations originating in the upper basin, upstream of the Barrier Dam.

More information on project requirements and evaluation will be available by the end of 2022, but in the meantime, these are some ways to learn more:

  • Watch or download a presentation specific to this part of the CRR Program
  • Review some of the CRR Program information, including the documents being updated for 2023
  • Use our CRR HAP Project Info Form to develop your idea and share it with us
  • Attend a virtual workshop to connect with CRR Program staff and technical advisors, learn more, and ask questions. Next workshop is 10/18 from 1 to 3 pm. Contact us for an appointment or to request an alternate date and time.
