$4 million in Community-based Restoration Program funding available for coastal and marine habitat restoration in 2020. Pre-proposals due January 8, 2020.

NOAA’s Restoration Center recognizes that habitat protection and restoration are essential elements of a strategy for sustainable commercial and recreational fisheries. Investing in habitat restoration projects leads to real, lasting differences for communities, businesses, and the environment. The Community-based Restoration Program supports restoration projects that use a habitat-based approach to rebuild productive and sustainable fisheries, contribute to the recovery and conservation of protected resources, promote healthy ecosystems, and yield community and economic benefits.  For more information: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/grant/coastal-and-marine-habitat-restoration-grants
