Join the Coalition

Is there a FERC-licensed hydropower dam on a river that is close to your home or your heart? If so, you should join the Hydropower Reform Coalition. By joining, you will become part of an extensive network of groups that have years of experience with FERC and hydropower licensing. We will help you become a more effective advocate for rivers affected by FERC-licensed dams.

Membership is open to any organization (individuals are not eligible for membership) that supports the Coalition's work and endorses its platform. There are no costs to members, and it is entirely up to each organization to decide its own level of participation in the Coalition's work.

Joining is easy as 1-2-3. Here's how:

  1. Download and read our platform.
  2. Get formal approval from your organizational leadership or Board.
  3. Submit a completed membership application form via email to
