About

The Alaska Sustainable Salmon Fund (AKSSF) program, administered by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, manages the State of Alaska's allocations from the federal Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund (PCSRF). PCSRF was established by Congress in 2000 to protect, restore, and conserve Pacific salmon and steelhead populations and their habitats. AKSSF allocates its funds annually through competitive calls for proposals (CFPs) that open in the spring (usually mid-April). Eligible projects conserve habitat, restore habitat, monitor subsistence salmon populations, investigate the causes of Chinook declines, and conduct climate impact studies to identify resilient salmon habitat. Please see the 2020 AKSSF Objectives document for more information.

Detailed information on CFPs is available on the Funding Opportunities tab when a CFP is open, and information on funded projects can be found on the Projects tab. Please contact Debbie Maas at debbie.maas@alaska.gov to be notified of CFP openings.
