Description: The Bureau of Reclamation intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), for grants/cooperative agreements for the following program: The Central Valley Project Improvement Act. The Trinity River Restoration Program (TRRP) is a multi-agency effort headquartered in Weaverville, California, with the goal to restore and sustain natural production of anadromous fish populations downstream of Lewiston Dam to pre-dam levels by restoring natural river processes. The strategy to accomplish the TRRP’s goal includes increased flow releases, sediment management and control, mechanical channel rehabilitation, watershed restoration, and an adaptive management program (USDOI, 2000). This approach resulted from years of study that culminated in the Trinity River Flow Evaluation Study (USFWS and HVT, 1999). The Trinity River Flow Evaluation Study’s recommended restoration methods, as well as other alternatives, were subsequently described and fully evaluated in an Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) (USFWS, Reclamation, HVT, and TC, 2000). In the Record of Decision (ROD) (USDOI, 2000), the TRRP was formed to implement the Preferred Alternative as described in the Final EIS/EIR. This FOA is expected to result in the award of multiple grants or cooperative agreements specifically to help implement the watershed restoration component of the TRRP. The Implementation Plan for the Preferred Alternative of the Trinity River Final EIS/EIR (Implementation Plan) (Stalnaker and Wittler, 2000), explains the impetus for the watershed program plus describes work activities, priorities, and funding sources. Successful applicants will enter into a financial assistance agreement with Reclamation. Period of Performance will not exceed 5 years from date of issuance. BOR-MP-20-F001 will post on grants.gov, at www.grants.gov. The end date for receipt of proposals is on March 8, 2020, no later than 3pm. System for Award Management (SAM) applies to this FOA. Prospective recipients must be registered in the SAM database or offeror is ineligible for an award. Information on SAM registration can be obtained via the Internet at http://www.sam.gov. The FOA must be downloaded at the grants.gov website. No paper copy will be distributed. Questions concerning this FOA must be directed, via email or letter, to Deanna Jackson at dljackson@usbr.gov.
