Our request for $80,000 from the Fishing is Fun grant program has been conditionally approved by the Division of Wildlife — “conditionally” means we need to develop some additional documentation, project details and permits for review by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. This is great news for BFC and means we can move forward with selecting a firm and starting detailed design.
With this FIF is grant, our total cash secured to date for this project is $205,000. We are still waiting to see the results of our grant request to the Trout and Salmon Foundation and BFC is putting up $5,000 in cash plus volunteer hours.
Implementation will be in the summer of 2013.
Thanks to Tim D’avis and Allen Nakagawa for their work on the grant applications!
