Grants to USA government agencies, tribal governments, special districts, nonprofit organizations, schools, and IHEs for environmental projects. Funding is intended for innovative projects to improve the status of indigenous fish species throughout the country. Funding is specifically intended for proposals to restore, protect, and enhance native fish species of conservation concern, especially in areas on or adjacent to federal agency lands.

Priority projects will address the leading factors in native fish species decline such as habitat alteration, environmental change, and invasive species. Projects benefiting one or more of the following native fish species and focal geographies are priorities for funding. Activities referenced in a NFWF business plan or a well-developed, comprehensive conservation strategy targeting these geographies/species will be most competitive.

  • Pacific lamprey, Chinook salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin.
  • Salmon in the Central and Northern California coasts. 
  • Intermountain West native trout and char including Yellowstone/Snake River, Colorado River, San Juan, and Greenback cutthroat trout, bull trout, Apache trout, and Gila trout.
  • Native desert fishes in the arid southwest, including sucker, dace, pupfish, and other species, especially those with overlapping distributions with other native fish species of conservation priority.
  • Great Lakes native fishes, including lake sturgeon, northern pike and eastern brook trout. 
  • Southern and southeastern native fish, especially endemic species of concern in the Cumberland, Tennessee and Mobile (Alabama/Coosa) River drainages.
  • Native fish of eastern U.S. rivers, especially river herring and American shad in the Chesapeake and Delaware watersheds.
  • National Scope

Restoration activities that address key limiting factors for focal species are priorities for the Bring Back the Natives program. These include:

  • Restoring Connectivity
  • Restoring Riparian, Instream Habitat, and Water Quality
  • Invasive species management
  • Innovation
