Targeted Investment Program



The Targeted Investment (TI) program was adopted by the Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) in 2020, and most recently amended in May of 2023. A Targeted Investment is a high-impact project that has significant salmon recovery benefits.

The current TI grant round will run in conjunction with the regular 2024 SRFB grant round. To balance the opportunity for funding these large projects, each region may submit up to six (6) projects for consideration. Eligible projects must request between $1 – $5 million.

SRFB will review and rank lists from each region and allocate 2024 supplemental funds as available. To ensure regional priorities are considered, points will be awarded to TI projects based on regionally assigned ranks and will contribute to the overall SRFB panel rankings. Unfunded TI projects will be presented to the legislature as a separate, large project funding request for the 2025-2027 biennium.

Targeted Investment Project Priorities

  1. Drive significant population-scale benefits consistent with regional recovery priorities.
  2. Accelerate the on-the-ground pace and scale of project implementation.
