The Bureau of Reclamation intends to issue a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), for grants/cooperative agreements for The Central Valley Project Improvement Act (CVPIA) program. The NOFO has a goal to improve salmonid habitats in the Sacramento River in northern California. The CVPIA describes activities to be carried out in furtherance of the anadromous fish doubling goal in the Act. See specifically sections 3406(b)(1), 3406(b)(13), and 3407(e). This NOFO implements the continued spawning and rearing habitat restoration activities outlined in Reclamation’s and the California Department of Water Resources Biological Assessment, dated October 2019, and the Biological Opinion from NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service on the Reinitation of Coordination on the Long-Term Operation of the Central Valley Project and State Water Project. The need for the habitat restoration work to be funded under the NOFO is to improve anadromous fish production and survival to make progress towards the doubling goal of the CVPIA. Improved populations will result in fewer operational constraints on the Central Valley Project. Successful applicants will enter into a financial assistance agreement with Reclamation. Period of Performance will not exceed 5 years from date of issuance. BOR-CGB-20-F002 will post on grants.gov, at www.grants.gov. The end date for receipt of proposals is on May 21, 2020, no later than 2p.m. System for Award Management (SAM) applies to this NOFO.
