Sacramento, CA -(Ammoland.com)- The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Fisheries Restoration Grant Program (FRGP) is seeking nominations to fill a vacancy on the FRGP Peer Review Committee (PRC).

Pursuant to the Public Resources Code, section 6217, members of the PRC are appointed by the director of CDFW to provide advice, oversight and recommendations regarding grant funding priorities for the FRGP. Seven of the PRC’s 14 representatives are recommended by the California Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout.

The remaining seven represent the following interests: one representative from the agriculture industry, one representative from the timber industry, one representative of public water agency interests, one academic or research scientist with expertise in anadromous fisheries restoration, and three county supervisors from coastal counties (the county supervisors are recommended by the California State Association of Counties).

Because the FRGP only awards grants to applicants within coastal counties of California, all representatives must reside in or represent interests in coastal counties in which salmon and steelhead exist.

CDFW will accept nominations from the general public for the Academic and Research position through July 7, 2014. The appointed Academic and Research representative will serve until December 2017, starting with the PRC meeting in the fall of 2014.

To nominate a representative for the Academic and Research seat, send a nomination letter to Patty Forbes, FRGP Coordinator, 830 S Street, Sacramento, CA 95811. Nomination letters should include a resume of the candidate and verification that they represent coastal counties in which salmon and steelhead exist.

About The Fisheries Restoration Grant Program

The Fisheries Restoration Grant Program (FRGP) was established in 1981 in response to rapidly declining populations of wild salmon and steelhead trout and deteriorating fish habitat in California. This competitive grant program has invested millions of dollars to support projects from sediment reduction to watershed education throughout coastal California. Contributing partners include federal and local governments, tribes, water districts, fisheries organizations, watershed restoration groups, the California Conservation Corps, AmeriCorps, and private landowners
