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.
