2013 Yukon River Salmon Research and Management Projects: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is requesting conceptual project proposals of one year in length addressing the needs of the priority Categories and Factors listed below. The Service receives funds for implementation of the Yukon River Salmon Agreement with Canada which was reached in March 2001. The Yukon River Salmon Act of 2000 authorizes funds for implementation of the Agreement including funds for cooperative research and management projects on the Alaska portion of the Yukon River. The Service administers these funds through financial assistance on a competitive basis for projects or studies that advance the scientific community's understanding and management of Chinook and chum salmon in the Yukon River of Alaska. Funding will support work beginning May 2013 and with project activities completed and final reports due June 2014. Applicants are strongly encouraged to develop projects that incorporate local capacity with members of Yukon River communities in which they may be working. Coordinating projects with state and federal regulatory agencies is also recommended, but not mandatory. The conceptual project proposals will be evaluated by an interagency review committee, for information on the ranking criteria, please see the full announcement Cost sharing or matching is not required, but is encouraged. The Service will develop and award the financial assistance documents funding the final proposals that meet all federal requirements and for which funding is available.
