NOAA Community Based Marine Debris Removal Grants
November 17, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Deadline for applications for the FY2015 COMMUNITY-BASED MARINE DEBRIS REMOVAL GRANTS that provide funding to catalyze the implementation of locally-driven, community-based marine debris prevention, assessment, and removal projects that will benefit coastal habitat, waterways, and NOAA trust resources. Projects awarded through this grant competition have strong on-the-ground habitat restoration components involving the removal of marine debris, including derelict fishing gear. Projects also provide benefits to coastal communities, and create long-term ecological habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources. Through this solicitation NOAA identifies marine debris removal projects, strengthens the development and implementation of habitat restoration through community-based marine debris removal, and fosters awareness of the effects of marine debris to further the conservation of living marine resource habitats, as well as contribute to the understanding of debris types and impacts. Successful proposals through this solicitation will be funded through cooperative agreements. Funding of up to $2,000,000 is expected to be available. Typical awards will range from $50,000 to $150,000. To see the full announcement and application forms, go to http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=265368.
