Hatfield Restoration Program: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and Klamath Basin Ecosystem Restoration Office (ERO) invite Pre-proposals for actions to recover listed species, restore the ecosystem, and improve reliability of water deliveries in the Upper Klamath Basin, Oregon and California. The FWS may provide funds for this work to public agencies, for-profit and non-profit organizations, Native American tribes, and individuals. We encourage private landowners and for-profit entities to work closely with a local watershed council or non-profit group. Funding is anticipated at approximately $1,550,000 for on-the-ground restoration projects, $240,000 for research and assessment proposals, and $50,000 for the Small Grants Partnership Program. The RFP is available on the internet at: http://www.fws.gov/klamathfallsfwo/ero/2007rfp/2007rfp.pdf or at the FWS office. Pre-proposals are to be sent electronically or delivered to the ERO on CD, and are due October 5, 2006. Watershed restoration work is part of the Hatfield Restoration Program authorized by Congress in 1996. It is administered by the ERO, with guidance provided by the Upper Klamath Basin Working Group (Hatfield Committee) and the Hatfield Restoration Science Team, which is composed of representatives from resource agencies, tribes and private consulting firms. The Science Team has drafted a 5-Year Plan for Restoration of the Upper Klamath Basin (Appendix 1). The emphasis in 2007 is on the recovery of endangered Lost River and shortnose suckers, and the habitat upon which they depend, particularly around Upper Klamath Lake and the Sprague River. (Note: We have prioritized vegetation and grazing management along riparian areas, as well as reconnecting springs and breaching dikes, rather than more costly channel realignment projects, until we have more data regarding effectiveness.)  Restoration Projects: About $1,550,000 will be granted to on-the-ground restoration projects that support the objectives listed on the 5-Year Plan. Possible projects are suggested in the 5-Year Plan (Appendix 1), although proposals need not be limited to those projects listed. Proposers will be responsible for securing all applicable permits for the project. Signed agreements between private landowners and FWS will be required prior to funding.  Research and Assessment: $240,000 will be granted to proposals that will provide information useful in advancing the objectives listed on the 5-Year Plan. Specific research and assessment projects being sought are identified in Appendix 1. As the FWS now has a monitoring program to evaluate the efficacy of the Restoration Program, we are not seeking monitoring proposals this year.  Small Grants Partnership Program: About $50,000 will be granted to small restoration projects (up to $25,000 each) on private ownerships that address the recovery of federal trust species such as bull trout, Lost River and shortnose suckers. We encourage private landowners to work with the local watershed council or a non-profit group. Small grants do not require a Pre-proposal or Detailed Proposal as outlined in this RFP. Please contact ERO staff directly to request a small grant (Akimi King 541-885-2515, Sue Mattenberger 541-885-2519, or Robert Parrish 541-885-2513). FWS contribution to the project is generally limited to less than 50% of the total cost, with cost-share making up the remainder. Projects will be selected using criteria similar to the Hatfield Restoration Program (Appendix 6). Preference will be given to parties that demonstrate cost-sharing with other partners and in-kind contributions by landowners to leverage limited funds available for these types of activities. Other funding programs include those offered by the Bureau of Reclamation, Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Forest Service, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and others. We are soliciting short Pre-proposals of less than two pages for Restoration, Research or Assessment projects directed toward achieving the objectives and priority projects listed in the 5-Year Plan in Appendix 1. Land acquisition and mitigation will not be considered for funding. Pre-proposals must be prepared in the format outlined in the enclosed Format for Pre-proposal (Appendix 2), and submitted electronically or on CD, as a single file in .PDF format. Pre-proposals will be reviewed by the Science Team for potential merit in mid-October. Parties will be notified by October 20, 2006. For those Pre-proposals that the Science Team has accepted, we will request Detailed Proposals (Appendix 3) with Budgets (Appendix 4) and Project Summaries (Appendix 5). Detailed Proposals will be due December 15, 2006. These will be reviewed and ranked by the Science Team in February, based on agreed-upon criteria (Evaluation Criteria, Appendices 6 & 7). The prioritized list of proposals will then be reviewed by the Upper Klamath Basin Working Group, and their recommendation will go to ERO for a final decision on funding. If you have questions, please contact Dave Ross, ERO Manager, at the above letterhead address or phone number. Pre-proposals must be submitted electronically or on a CD, in a single .PDF file, no later than October 5, 2006 to the following e-mail address: kfalls@fws.gov. Thank you for your effort.
