NOAA Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Program Partnership Grant
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Program is inviting applications requesting funding to establish one or more regional habitat restoration partnerships for 1 to 3 years. The objective of this program is to fund one or more partner(s) that is regionally-based and has an ecosystem-approach restoration plan focused on an Area of Concern (AOC). The partnerships are expected to catalyze the implementation of habitat restoration projects that will benefit coastal resources through improved Great Lakes habitat quality. The centerpiece of the program will be a focus on one or more restoration projects in an AOC that: are based on strong science and data availability; are ecosystem focused; and, will address fish, wildlife and open lake habitat beneficial use impairments. Funding up to $1 million may be available to establish the habitat restoration partnership(s) in 2008, and annual funding is anticipated to maintain them for 1 to 3 years duration. Notice was published in the Federal Register Vol.72, No.126, July 2, 2007, page 36248. To see the full announcement visit: www.grants.gov and search for Funding Opportunity NMFS-HCPO-2008-2000978.
