Grants generally ranging from $30,000 to $60,000 to California, Oregon, and Washington nonprofit organizations, agencies, universities, schools, and private landowners for projects to improve the availability or quality of habitat for juvenile fish in nearshore and estuarine waters. Funding is intended for projects to benefit focal species along the West Coast.
PMEP is one of 20 regional fish habitat partnerships in the United States. Its mission is to provide science, data, and funding to conserve and restore West Coast nearshore marine and estuarine fish habitat. PMEP is advancing estuarine habitat classification and mapping and is gathering and assessing information about estuarine and nearshore marine fish habitat use. It also prioritizes and funds fish habitat restoration projects through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP).

- Individual project awards are generally between $30,000 and $60,000.
- Strong project proposals that request less than $50,000 will be given precedence in an effort to fund a diverse portfolio of projects. However, proposals of particular merit may be funded at a higher level at the discretion of the review panel.
The project or portion of a project that PMEP funds must be completed within two years and all PMEP funding should be spent during that time.
