The YBFWRB Board of Directors approved the 2017 recommended funding on August 3rd.
Follow this link for the ranked list and more information on projects.
Next steps will be to submit our draft ranked list to the state on August 14th and work with the state to clear any projects of concern. Final grant decisions will be announced at the December SRFB meeting in Olympia.
Although the local grant review process is now complete, funding cannot be awarded until the WA state capital budget is passed. It is likely that the Yakima Basin Lead Entity allocation will be $1,186,813, which completely fund the first 5 ranked projects and partially fund the 6th ranked project. Please stay tuned for more information on the capital budget and how it effects the 2017 SRFB grant round.
