Fish Screening Cost-Share Program
Water users may apply for cost share funding and/or a tax credit to assist with the installation of fish screening devices, by-pass devices, and fish ways. Water users may include: individual users, irrigation districts, state agencies, municipal suppliers, commercial industries, watershed councils, Soil and Water Conservation Districts and others. There are a few project types that are ineligible for this program and they include: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) projects operated solely for hydropower generation, projects associated with a water right issued since January 1. 1996, and projects with a Federal agency listed as the applicant.
Water users interested in more information on the cost-share program or to apply for cost share assistance are encouraged to contact the screens coordinator for their area.
Please contact the regional coordinator in your area before completing an application.
