Proposals should be designed to strengthen the capacity of tribes, support government-to-government relationships, and increase opportunities for education about the operation of the Federal Columbia River Power System, Federal Columbia River Transmission System or integrated Fish and Wildlife Program.
Projects should include how the project will advance participants awareness and understanding of electrical generation and transmission, energy efficiency, hydropower, environmental stewardship of the Columbia River Basin habitat and ecosystems, and cultural resource management.
