2018 SRFB Process

The 2018 Yakima Basin local grant round process is now complete. Our Board of Directors approved the ranked funding list August 2nd and the list will be submitted to the state August 15th. Final grant decisions will be announced at the December SRFB meeting in Olympia. For the full 2018 schedule, see our page of Information for Applicants. 

The following table outlines the recommended funding list approved by YBFWRB Board of Directors. We expect an allocation of $1,181,880 for the Yakima Basin Lead Entity, which would fund the first six projects completely and partially funds the seventh project. This leaves project eight as an alternate. The last two projects have been recommended for deferral for the 2018 SRFB grant round. The Lead Entity recommends projects for deferral when there are questions or concerns relating to a project such that both committees do not wish to fund the project this year but believe the project could be a SRFB funded project in the future, if their questions/concerns are addressed. 

Please use the project hyperlinks for additional information on each proposal.
