The Stream Flow Enhancement Program (SFEP) funds projects that enhance stream flows across the state of California. The SFEP defines enhanced streamflow to mean: a change in the amount, timing, and/or quality of water flowing down a stream, or a portion of a stream, to benefit fish and wildlife. ; The following are funding priorities for the stream flow enhancement projects:• Implementation projects resulting in measurable increases in stream flow• Acquisition projects resulting in permanent or long-term in-stream flow dedications• Projects that are focused on a watershed or regional approach• Projects in critical watersheds for salmonids• Projects that help to complete previously funded projects• Projects that evaluate stream flow conditions and stream responses to other stream flow enhancement projects Funded projects are also consistent with the objectives and actions outlined in the California Water Action Plan, with the primary focus on enhancing flow in streams that support anadromous fish; support special-status, threatened, endangered, or at-risk species; or provide resilience to climate change. For projects that may be funded by general fund stream flow enhancement funds, Full Applications will be given additional points that enhance outflows in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta watershed.Eligible project categories are Planning, Scientific Studies, Implementation, and Acquisition. Applications for Planning and Scientific Study projects must be stand-alone (i.e., not combined with other project categories).
