This project funded the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribes participation in the Hood Canal and Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca Lead Entity Process. This funding was specifically be used to fund tribal staff membership on the Hood Canal Coordinating Council’s (HCCC ) Technical Advisory Group (TAG). Technical Advisory Group (TAG) members are identified in Phase I. LE staff solicits and appoints local (Hood Canal and Puget Sound), professionals with technical expertise related to salmon habitat recovery. This expertise can be related to disciplines such as planning, hydrology, biology, ecology and other scientific concentrations. There is no limit on the number of TAG members that can be selected to participate. TAG members evaluate and score projects independently with pre-determined technical criteria for the given funding round on the basis of the information provided in the Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) applications. We also ask the TAG to provide comments in written format so that information can be collated and shared with the sponsor.

Project Benefit    

This project will help ensure that the habitat portions of the Summer Chum and Chinook Salmon Recovery Plans are implemented in accordance with the lead entity area overseen by the Hood Canal Coordinating Council. These activities include developing both short term (3 Year Work Program) and long term (Habitat Work Schedule) project lists and evaluating and ranking project proposals.

          Description and scope of the plan implemented
          The SRP is designed to ensure the long-term survival and health of summer chum salmon originating from the Hood Canal and eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca watersheds. The SRP lays out a comprehensive strategy intended to meet the technical requirements for a recovery plan under ESA while respecting political, economic, historical, social, and cultural values and realities in the planning area. Though the SRP does not specifically address other ESA-listed species in the region (Puget Sound Chinook and bull trout), it is expected that these species will benefit from recovery actions.
