2020 NOAA Community-based Restoration Program Coastal and Marine Habitat Restoration Grants


The NOAA Restoration Center has announced a funding opportunity for planning/design and/or construction of habitat restoration projects in 2020.  The Community-based Restoration Program supports restoration projects that use a habitat-based approach to rebuild productive and sustainable fisheries, contribute to the recovery and conservation of protected resources, promote healthy ecosystems, and yield community and economic benefits.

The funding opportunity includes a mandatory pre-proposal due January 8th, 2020. General information is available here.  The full announcement which provides all the pre and full proposal requirements is available at the Grants.Gov link here.

In addition, an applicant webinar will be held Dec. 5th and I’m here to help! Feel free to call me or email me with any questions related to the grant opportunity or to discuss potential project ideas.  Please distribute this notice to your partners as well.
