Up to $12 million in funding is available under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to implement fish passage work and build tribal organizational capacity. This funding will support Indian tribes, tribal commissions, and tribal consortia in implementing tribal priority fish passage projects, including organizational capacity building, that benefit migratory fish in coastal ecosystems, including the Great Lakes.
In collaboration with NOAA, selected Indian tribes and tribal commission or consortia partners will use these funds to implement barrier removal efforts that benefit tribally-important migratory fish, and to build tribal organizational capacity to participate in developing current and future fish passage projects. Funding will support fisheries and protected resources, while also enhancing community resilience to climate hazards by removing or improving aging infrastructure.
Who Can Apply?
Eligible applicants are Indian tribes (as defined in 25 U.S.C. Section 5304 (e)) and tribal commissions or consortia.
