For Klamath Off-Channel Livestock Watering grants, applicants must demonstrate how proposed areas for livestock watering wells and construction of off-channel water facilities are identified and prioritized. Eligible activities include: • Well construction for livestock water, initial power hookups, and associated infrastructure for off-channel watering (e.g., solar or electric pumps, piping from the well to troughs/cisterns). • Project design for well construction and off-channel watering infrastructure. (It is strongly encouraged that the applicant follow Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) guidelines for Construction and Material Specs and Practice Standards of off-channel watering facilities.) • Riparian exclusion fencing. Full exclusion is not required, but strongly encouraged. • Modest costs for riparian planting efforts. Non-native plant control is allowed within the riparian buffer areato assist in plant establishment, but this is not intended to be the primary source of funding. • Development of a grazing management plan. Applicants must document the property landownership and describe historical livestock stream access. Applicants must demonstrate the capacity to plan and implement successful actions over a relatively short timeframe (see information below about funding lifespan). A 25% match (cash and/or in-kind contributions) is encouraged. However, applications with less than 25% match will be accepted.
