2022 Project application information

The funding process is in transition as the National Fish Habitat Partnership incorporates changes due to America’s Conservation Enhancement (ACE) Act, which was passed in 2020. For more information, visit http://fishhabitat.org/. In May, EBTJV's project review team submitted a ranked list of brook trout habitat improvement projects to the NFHAP Board for 2022 funding. EBTJV submitted five on-the-ground projects which we had recruited from a list of unfunded applicants for EBTJV's 2021 funding cycle. All projects satisfied qualifications, including non-federal match, under the ACE Act. The NFHAP Board has completed a review process to determine recommended 2022 funding levels to each of the 20 national Fish Habitat Partnerships (EBTJV received the highest funding tier available) and submitted these to the DOI. Final decisions are dependent on the federal budget and appropriations, and as such will not be made for several months. Looking to submit a project for the next round? We hope to know about the 2023 cycle soon. Stay tuned.
