doing so, the program aims to maintain or increase fish populations in order to improve ecosystem resiliency and to provide quality fishing experiences for the American people.

Activities that restore fish passage also support the modernization of country¿s infrastructure such as road culverts, bridges and water diversions.

Example project types include dam removals, culvert replacements, and the installation of fishways.

The NFPP is delivered through 51 Fisheries and Aquatic Conservation (FAC) Field Offices across all States and territories.

FAC staff coordinate with project partners, stakeholders and other Service programs to identify and collaboratively implement projects within Regional priority areas.

Project work plans are developed strategically, in coordination with partners, and with substantial involvement from FAC staff.

Projects must advance the Service mission, promote biological diversity, and be based upon sound scientific biological principles.

FAC and Service strategic plans inform the types of projects funded under this opportunity.

Applicants seeking funding under this program should review the program strategic plan and also contact the regional NFPP Coordinator that corresponds to the location of the project for additional regional priorities prior to submitting an application for funding.

Contacts are listed at end of announcement.
