The NOAA Marine Debris Program is proud to announce our FY19 “Marine Debris Removal” federal funding opportunity.
Projects awarded through the removal grant competition will create long-term, quantifiable ecological habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources, with priority consideration for efforts targeting derelict fishing gear and other medium- and large-scale debris. Projects should also foster public awareness of the effects of marine debris to further the conservation of living marine resource habitats, and contribute to the understanding of marine debris composition, distribution and impacts.
The submission period for removal proposals will extend from August 20 - October 29, 2018.
