Note: All partnerships interested in submitting an application to the Implementation Focused Investment Partnership (FIP) Program are required to participate in a pre-application consultation with OWEB staff.

Definition

A Focused Investment Partnership is an OWEB investment that:

  • Addresses a Board-identified Focused Investment Priority of significance to the state; 
  • Achieves clear and measurable ecological outcomes;
  • Uses integrated, results-oriented approaches as identified through a strategic action plan; and 
  • Is implemented by a high-performing partnership.

Implementation Grants

Implementation funding supports Focused Investment Partnership conservation initiatives. An initiative may be part of the partnership’s strategic action plan, or it may be the entire plan (see Strategic Action Plan below). Initiatives must address an OWEB Board-approved Priority of significance to the state. Initiatives will also demonstrate clear and measurable restoration outputs and ecological outcomes that support limiting factors outlined in a federal recovery and/or state conservation plan(s). Implementation supports up to $12 million over 3 biennia (6 years).

Strategic Action Plan

​Any partnership applying for FIP Implementation funding must have a strategic action plan that addresses all components detailed in OWEB's Strategic Action Plan Guidance document. If your partnership already has one relevant, current, published plan, check it against the guidance to ensure that all components are addressed. The scope of an Implementation conservation initiative is determined by the partnership and constitutes that portion of the strategic action plan that the partnership believes it can accomplish in the proposed timeframe with the proposed funding.
