GLIN==> Dam removal grant opportunity



NOAA Open Rivers Initiative Announces Funding Opportunity

The NOAA Open Rivers Initiative (ORI) provides funding and technical expertise for community-driven, small dam and river barrier removals, primarily in coastal states. Projects are expected to provide an economic boost for communities, enhance public safety, and improve populations of NOAA trust resources such as striped bass, Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, Atlantic and Pacific salmon, American eel, American shad, blueback herring, and alewife. Proposals selected for funding will be implemented through a cooperative agreement. For more information, go to http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/habitat/restoration/projects_programs/crp/partners_funding/callforprojects3.html. Proposals are due January 13, 2006.

Great Lakes projects should focus on anadromous fish such as salmon, steelhead, cut throat and brown trout, alewife, rainbow smelt, and lake sturgeon; NOAA is also interested in projects that benefit American eel, white perch, and lake trout.
