Get Help to Improve Your Stream

Do you have a stream in your backyard? Are you interested in completing a project to improve habitat for salmon? You can receive grants for projects that range from $2,000 to $200,000 through the Backyard Habitat Grant Program! Eligible projects must be located on private property in Kitsap County. The program provides funding for:

  • Streamside plantings
  • Noxious weed removal
  • Stream enhancement projects such as placement of large woody material and stream gravel
  • Removing undersized culverts, old dams or concrete structures to improve fish passage

To find out if you are eligible for a grant and to schedule a free site visit to evaluate your stream or shoreline area, please contact the Kitsap Conservation District at (360) 204-5529, or email
