OWEB FIP Implementation Grant Stakeholder Input

The Willamette Valley Oak and Prairie Cooperative (WVOPC) is seeking broad input into their OWEB FIP Implementation grant proposal. The proposal, for 6 years of funding, is due June 30, 2020, and will focus on addressing a number of the threats to oak and prairie habitat outlined in the recently released Strategic Action Plan. Participants are invited to join one of four available webinars to hear about and provide input on WVOPC’s draft set of priorities for what to fund, what kinds of projects would be eligible for funding, and what that means for other OWEB funding programs for oak and prairie work in the Willamette Valley. Please join the WVOPC to share your perspective and guidance on how to make this application successful!
