GLIN==> Coastal Land Acquisition Funding Opportunity



Coastal Land Acquisition Funding Opportunity

The Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) in the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department
of Commerce, is soliciting coastal and estuarine land conservation
acquisition projects from eligible coastal states. The Coastal and
Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP) was established "for the
purpose of protecting important coastal and estuarine areas that have
significant conservation, recreation, ecological, historical, or
aesthetic values, or that are threatened by conversion from their
natural or recreational state to other uses." This announcement solicits
proposals for land acquisition projects, up to 3 years in duration, with
the purpose of protecting important coastal and estuarine areas. Project
proposals should reflect priorities identified in an approved state CELC
plan or, if a state's plan has not been completed, by the state's
approved coastal management program. Eligible coastal states may submit
up to three project proposals with a requested funding level not to
exceed $3,000,000 per project. 

DATES: Proposals must be received by the NOS/OCRM no later than 11:59
p.m. EST, October 27, 2006. The closing deadline for applying through
grants.gov is the same as for the paper submission noted in this
announcement. Applicants are strongly recommended to allow sufficient
time for delivery of materials, electronically or by mail, by the
deadline.
