Brian Abbott Fish Barrier Removal Board

The Legislature established the grant program of the Brian Abbott Fish Barrier Removal Board (FBRB) in 2014 to identify and remove impediments to salmon and steelhead migration.

The role of the FBRB is to adopt governing policies (funding strategies, project eligibility, match requirements, etc.), set project evaluation criteria, review project scoring and recommendations from the FBRB Technical Review Team, and approve a project priority list to be submitted to the Governor's Office and the Legislature for funding consideration.

The grant program is administered jointly by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO). All FBRB-funded grant projects shall match the principles provided in Revised Code of Washington 77.95.180 and are reviewed and approved by the FBRB.
