Coastal Counties Restoration Initiative
http://www.nfwf.org/programs/ccri.cfm

The National Association of Counties <http://www.naco.org>  and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, in cooperation with the Community-Based Restoration Program within NOAA Fisheries <http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/habitat/restoration/> , are pleased to announce a new program targeting marine habitat restoration in coastal counties. The Coastal Counties Restoration Initiative provides financial assistance on a competitive basis to innovative, high quality county-led or supported initiatives that foster community-based wetland, riparian, and coastal habitat restoration projects through project planning and hands-on conservation. These projects will improve habitat for NOAA trust resources, including marine, estuarine, and anadromous fish habitat.

Grants will be awarded through a competitive process to eligible grant recipients. Grants that are community-based in nature and willing to work in partnership with NOAA will be given special consideration, as NOAA's Community-based Restoration Program is providing major financial support for this partnership. Grants will range from $25,000-$100,000, based upon need. 

The Coastal Counties Restoration Initiative seeks to: 
*	Encourage innovative, county programs or projects that restore important marine and coastal habitats and living resources; 
*	Develop the capacity of local county governments, citizens groups and other organizations to promote community based stewardship and enhance local watershed-based resource management; 
*	Strengthen the relationship between coastal counties and the NOAA Community-Based Restoration Program.	

Application Deadline is February 24
