Grant Description
Grants to Alaska organizations, Tribes, individuals, and government agencies for conservation projects in eligible locations. Funding is intended to protect, manage, and preserve fish habitats and aquatic resources in the area. Grants may be used to respond to threats that endanger fish and their habitats and to strengthen the resiliency, health, and productivity of fish in the southern panhandle of Alaska. All projects require an outreach component.

SEAKFHP is a collaborative effort that seeks to implement comprehensive conservation strategies for freshwater and coastal aquatic ecosystems of Southeast Alaska that will conserve and sustain the region’s fish, fish habitat, fisheries-based economy, and culture. SEAKFHP works to achieve this vision by providing information and coordination services to partners and fostering collaborative engagement of planning, assessment and on-the-ground implementation work that protects and restores fish habitat across Southeast Alaska. 

Projects considered for funding address science-based habitat protection, restoration, and enhancement activities that benefit freshwater and coastal aquatic habitats in Southeast Alaska and are addressed under SEAKFHP’s Strategic Action Plan:

NFHP funds can be used for on-the-ground habitat projects and related project assessment, design, monitoring, and outreach activities. Eligible projects may include riparian or instream habitat protection, enhancement, and restoration; barrier removal or construction; range-wide population or watershed habitat assessments to prioritize and plan habitat conservation; and habitat-related community outreach and education actions.

For additional information about program goals and objectives, see page 2 of the Guidelines, in Supporting Documents, below.
