Funding For Habitat Restoration In U.S. Great Lakes Areas of Concern

Jan 4: NOAA's Restoration Center announced a Federal funding opportunity (FFO) for habitat restoration in U.S. Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs). The closing date is February 27, 2013. NOAA anticipates up to $5 million may be available for habitat restoration; typical awards for on the ground implementation are expected to range between $750,000 and $4 million. NOAA will also accept proposals for engineering and design of habitat restoration projects; typical awards are expected to range between $50,000 and $350,000.

    New this year NOAA will accept four proposals per AOC (each with an endorsement letter from either the state agency responsible for implementing the Area of Concern program or local public stakeholder group working with the state agency on implementing the remedial action plan): two for on the ground restoration projects and two for engineering and design projects. In cases where an Area of Concern crosses state boundaries, each state can submit two proposals for implementation and two proposals for engineering and design.
