    The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) is a state agency that provides grants to help Oregonians take care of local streams, rivers, wetlands and natural areas. Community members and landowners use scientific criteria to decide jointly what needs to be done to conserve and improve rivers and natural habitat in the places where they live. OWEB grants are funded from the Oregon Lottery, federal dollars, and salmon license plate revenue. The agency is led by a 17 member citizen board drawn from the public at large, tribes, and federal and state natural resource agency boards and commissions.
Monitoring & Reporting Program Program Highlights
OWEB supports a range of monitoring activities and grants. These include: baseline, compliance, status and trend, effectiveness, and validation monitoring. Through the complement of different types of monitoring efforts, OWEB is able to document watershed conditions, track changes in critical habitat and species over time, and evaluate the effectiveness of conservation and restoration efforts. This diversity of monitoring approaches is essential to building an understanding of watershed health, tracking the success of watershed improvement projects, and setting restoration priorities.




NEW! Online Project Completion Reporting

We are pleased to offer online project completion reporting via the OWEB Grant Management System (OGMS).  OWEB's effort to streamline processes coincides with and supports our Strategic Plan and long-term investment strategy development.
Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Funding Reporting (PCSRF)
OWEB applies and competes regionally for the PCSRF dollars each year. Once received, OWEB is responsible for distributing PCSRF funds to projects in Oregon. Twice a year, OWEB is required to submit information about PCSRF-funded projects and data related to projects funded by state dollars to the PCSRF database
