Funding is intended to support the planning, design, and monitoring of recovery projects that restore habitats or otherwise provide direct benefit to this endangered species.
Projects must be located in the mainstem Klamath River Basin and tributaries between Iron Gate Dam (IGD) at River Mile (RM) 190 and the Klamath River mouth. With the exception of the Trinity River, all tributaries between IGD and the Klamath River mouth are eligible for funding through the Grant Program.

The goal of this competitive Grant Program is to support restoration activities that have a direct benefit to SONCC coho salmon and/or design, planning, or monitoring projects that can demonstrate direct benefit for coho salmon. All projects must comply with the 2019 Biological Opinion prepared by NMFS.
