Projects

From FY 2006 through FY 2020, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) allocated more than $3.5 million to the EBTJV in support of ninety-four Brook Trout conservation projects, while project partners contributed $19.8 million, which equates to a 5:7 ratio of partner to Service funds. Hundreds of organizations have been involved in these projects, including NGOs, state agencies, federal agencies, watershed groups, indigenous tribes, businesses, educational institutions, and local governments. These projects have removed 107 barriers, reconnected 382 miles of stream, and enhanced or restored 357 acres of riparian habitat.

EBTJV Funding Opportunities

Each year, the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture requests project proposals that are focused on conserving and restoring habitat that will support healthy and productive populations of wild Brook Trout. Although we usually open the funding program to applications in August, this year is different. Please come back in October for a notice of a FY23 RFP, or sign up to our list serve to get email notifications: https://lp.constantcontactpages.com/su/nERCekW/BKT
