Dept. of the Army -- Corps of Engineers
On behalf of the Estuary Habitat Restoration Council (Council), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is soliciting proposals for estuary habitat restoration projects. Congress has appropriated limited funds to USACE for implementation of the Estuary Habitat Restoration Program (EHRP) as authorized in Section 104 of the Estuary Restoration Act of 2000 (ERA), Title I of the Estuaries and Clean Waters Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-457, as amended) (accessible at http://www.usace.army.mil/Missions/Environmental/EstuaryRestoration.aspx). Eligible projects must provide ecosystem benefits, have scientific merit, be technically feasible, be able to adapt to the impacts associated with climate change, and be cost-effective. Projects selected for EHRP funding will be implemented through either a cost-share agreement with USACE or a cooperative agreement with USACE. All grant awards are subject to availability of funds. The Council anticipates up to $3.5 million may be available for estuarine habitat restoration; awards are limited to a range between $200,000 and $1 million.
