From fiscal years (FY) 2010-2013, the Selway-Middle Fork project has netted nearly $12.2 million in appropriated CFLR funds and more than $10.6 million in matching contributions to accomplish restoration work in the Selway-Middle Fork area.
Annual CFLR Program Allocation
Legislation establishing the program specified that money appropriated for CFLR projects be matched through monetary and in-kind contributions. The following table summarizes the amounts and sources of match.
