Now Open: FY 2020 Grant Opportunity for Community-based Marine Debris Removal Projects

The NOAA Marine Debris Program is proud to announce our FY 2020 “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 will 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 Letter of Intent (LOI) submission period for removal projects will extend from July 15 to September 4, 2019. Applicants who submit successful LOIs will be invited to submit a full proposal following the LOI review period.

For more information on this FY 2020 grant opportunity, please visit Grants.gov and the NOAA Marine Debris Program’s website.
