NOAA seeks applications for $9 million in community-based habitat restoration

As part of its efforts to promote healthy ecosystems and resilient coastal communities, NOAA announces the availability of $9 million in Community-based Restoration Program funding for coastal and marine habitat restoration in 2016. 
NOAA is seeking proposals from non-federal partners for habitat restoration projects that will improve the recovery and conservation of protected resources, and help promote productive fisheries. The selected projects will not only support species recovery and sustainable fisheries, but will also yield community and economic benefits such as increased resiliency in the face of coastal hazards, and additional business and recreational opportunities.
