The goal of the Yampa River Fund is to establish a sustainable, voluntary funding source for the Yampa River in order to:

• Support a healthy, flowing river and enhance critical low flows through water leases from reservoirs, and;
• Maintain or improve river function through a holistic approach to restoration of riparian and/or in-channel habitat.
