 SBF Final Logo SBF-funded projects are selected by the SBF Steering Committee, comprised of voting representatives from the Feather River Recreation & Parks District and the City of Oroville.  During each year that funds area available, the SBF Steering Committee will announce the availability through a published "NOFA" Notice of Funds Available. 

Vision Statement of the Supplemental Benefits Fund  

                                                                                                                      (approved July 13, 2011)

"Reconnecting the beauty and diversity of the Feather River with the community will be the primary component of projects approved by the Supplemental Benefits Fund Steering Committee.  The approved projects will provide additional recreational opportunities and economic benefits that enhance the lifestyle of the Oroville Region" 

I.   Major consideration:  The applicant shall provide a compelling presentation as to how the proposed project will assist in mitigating what was lost by the construction of the Oroville Dam Facilities (FERC Project No. 2100).  The application shall take into consideration the various existing City of Oroville, Feather River Recreation & park District, the Settlement Agreement for licensing of the Oroville Facilities, FERC Project No. 2100, and other regional plans.

 II.   Moderate consideration:  The applicant should provide a meaningful connection to existing, or planned, facilities and projects. The application should also be in, or near, the low-flow channel of the Feather River and assist in making the Oroville Region a Northern California destination.

 III.  Low Consideration: The applicant's proposed project may be away from the low-flow channel of the Feather River, not connected to existing, or planned, facilities and projects, be unique or a non-profit venture within the Oroville Region including areas under FERC jurisdiction; however, the project must, at a minimum, meet the stated vision of the SBF.
