Bond Funds will be used to benefit Bay-Delta associated fish species as part of the CALFED Ecosystem Restoration Program. The ERP was developed as the central plan for restoration and conservation efforts of northern San Francisco Bay, Suisun Marsh, the Sacramento - San Joaquin Delta, and tributaries. The restoration program is an ambitious 30-year effort to restore native fishes and habitats within the CALFED Bay-Delta area. The selection of projects will be guided by the ERP Strategic Plan. The Program has an extensive scientific, agency and stakeholder review process to assure the appropriateness for projects selected for funding. Projects are solicited through an open public solicitation process or by directed action by the implementing agencies.
More than 30 State and federal agencies participate in one, or more, of eleven program elements of the CALFED Bay-Delta Program and participate directly or indirectly with the ERP Program. Additional information on this program, including links to the program plans and projects, can be found on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
