2017 SRFB Process

The 2017 Yakima Basin local grant round process is now complete. Our Board of Directors approved recommended funding list on August 3 and the list was submitted to the state on August 14th. Final grant decisions were announced at the December SRFB meeting in Olympia. For the full 2017 schedule, see our page of Information for Applicants

The following table outlines the recommended funding list approved by YBFWRB Board of Directors, submitted to the state, and approved by SRFB. The Yakima Basin Lead Entity was allocated $1,186,813, which funds completely the first five projects and partially funds the sixth ranked project. This makes projects 7-11 alternate projects.
