The System of Lead Entities was created by the Washington State Legislature to support local management of salmon recovery. Lead Entity contracts are managed by the Governor's Salmon Recovery Office which currently operates out of the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office. The Lead entity budget supports a part time coordinator who staffs a citizen and technical advisory group, and supports development of a 3-year workplan and annual allocations from the Salmon Recovery Funding Board. Lead entities are responsible for management of the Habitat Work Schedule, a database describing the salmon recovery effort.

Lead entity coordinators in Puget Sound also frequently serve as Puget Sound watershed leads in Chinook recovery planning processes. There are confusing similarities and overlap between the state lead salmon recovery system, and the roles played in the federally led listing and recovery process under the Endangered Species Act
