The Bureau of Reclamation, Upper Colorado Region (Reclamation), is requesting proposals to fund projects for activities in support of their environmental program in federal FY 2005 (October 1, 2004 through September 30, 2005). Reclamation periodically makes funding available for projects addressing two general categories: habitat restoration and improvement, and research and monitoring. The objectives of this program are 1) to prevent additional listing of species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), 2) to improve conditions for those listed species lacking recovery programs and, 3) to assess vulnerabilities of sensitive species on an ecosystem-wide basis. Pursuing these objectives will allow Reclamation to more effectively accomplish its core mission of water and power delivery while meeting its environmental commitments.
Projects should fall under one of the following descriptions: habitat improvement projects for T&E (threatened and endangered) and at-risk or sensitive species that affect or are affected by Reclamation activities; collaborative management programs for T&E and other species at risk for listing under ESA (Endangered Species Act) that affect or are affected by Reclamation activities; research and monitoring projects for T&E and at-risk species, other research addressing habitat needs of T&E and at-risk species; and projects that help to prevent listing of additional species under ESA that could be adversely impacted by Reclamation projects and activities.
