RESTORE News: Funded Priorities Factsheets Released

On 1 December 2015, the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council released the Initial Funded Priorities List (FPL) which was approved on 9 December 2015. Using funds from the settlement with Transocean Deepwater Inc., the Council is seeking to provide near-term, on-the-ground ecosystem benefits, while also conducting planning activities designed to build a foundation for future success as additional funds become available from other parties.

 

The Council will focus on 10 key watersheds across the Gulf in order to concentrate and leverage funds to address critical ecosystem needs in high priority locations. The Council also approved a suite of Gulf-wide investments designed to support holistic ecosystem restoration and lay the foundation for future success.
