Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB)
In 1999, the Washington State Legislature created the Salmon Recovery Funding Board. The board provides grants to protect or restore salmon habitat and assist related activities. Composed of five citizens appointed by the Governor, and five state agency directors, the board brings together the experiences and viewpoints of citizens and the major state natural resource agencies.

- The SRFB is staffed by The Washington Recreation and Conservation Office
