- Lead entities must submit requests for site visits by the 'Letter of Inquiry' deadline.

- Full applications are due by Full Proposal' deadline.
- In-Stream Diversion includes activities that protect fish from the withdrawal and return of surface water, such as screening of fish from a water diversion (dam, headgate), the water conveyance system (both gravity and pressurized pump), and the by-pass of fish back to the stream.
- In-Stream Habitat includes activities that enhance freshwater fish habitat below the ordinary high water mark, such as adding boulders, gravel, or woody materials; relocating a channelized stream to a more natural channel configuration; reconnecting the channel to its floodplain or off-channel habitat; removing bank armor; or removing and controlling nonnative in-stream plants. Work may occur on the channel bed, bank, or floodplain.
- Riparian Habitat includes freshwater, marine near-shore, and estuarine activities that will improve the riparian habitat outside of the ordinary high water mark or in wetlands, such as planting native vegetation, managing invasive species; or controlling livestock, vehicle, and foot traffic within protected areas.
- Upland Habitat includes activities that improve habitat important to fish but occur upslope of the riparian or estuarine area. Activities may affect the timing and delivery of water, sediment, and large woody materials to streams; or improve water temperature or quality. Upland habitat projects may include, but are not limited to, upland erosion control, upland plant establishment and management, water conservation, or road decommissioning.
- Estuarine and Marine Near-shore includes activities includes activities that enhance fish habitat within the shoreline riparian zone or below the mean high water mark, such as work conducted in or adjacent to the intertidal area and in subtidal areas; beach restoration; bulkhead removal; dike modification or removal; native plant establishment; and tidal channel reconstruction. Nearshore assessment projects spanning multiple lead entities are eligible for funding; however, they need to be on each lead entity list, within the target funding allocation for each lead entity, and have a total value that is prorated among lead entities.
