Funding for Environmental Restoration Projects

The national interest in restoration of stream ecosystems has expanded rapidly over the past few decades. This is particularly evident in the number of sources of funds for restoration and the amount of money available overall for private and public organizations and agencies.

Funds for restoration are available through many different sources including the federal government, state government, voter-approved bonds, emergency aid relief, mitigation trusts, and private foundations. The information presented at this web site is only a partial list of possible sources and contacts that can guide or assist in restoring streams.

Navigation links are located below and in the right column, to guide you to the funding sources.
