Additional Restoration Grant Program Awards and StoryMaps
CDFW announced nearly $36 million in projects to benefit salmon and their habitats, and to further support climate resiliency, wildlife corridors and wetlands restoration. These awards include $29 million in Drought Emergency Salmon Protection Grants to 10 projects demonstrating support from and collaboration with Tribes and landowner interests in the Shasta and Scott rivers and their watersheds and $9 million from the same fund to Tribes in the Klamath River mainstem for post-McKinney Fire debris flow damage remediation, slope and sediment stabilization, and restoration for salmonids.
CDFW also released its new Grant Project StoryMaps, interactive web pages to view project information with photos, starting with these recent awards. A separate Drought - Protecting Salmon StoryMaps features just the Salmon projects funded with Emergency Drought funding. Projects will continue to be added to these StoryMaps so continue to check back.
