On behalf of the Estuary Habitat Restoration Council, NOAA Fisheries Service is soliciting proposals for estuary habitat restoration projects. The Council seeks projects that achieve cost-effective restoration while promoting partnerships among agencies and between public and private sectors.

Priority consideration will be provided to project proposals that:

Selected projects must provide ecosystem benefits, have scientific merit, be technically feasible, cost-effective, and support the Estuary Habitat Restoration Strategy. Proposals selected for Estuary Habitat Restoration Program funding may be implemented in accordance with a cost-share agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps); or a cooperative agreement with the Corps or NOAA, subject to availability of funds. The Council anticipates up to $7 million may be available for funding; awards are expected to range between $100,000 and $1 million.

The FY2011 Solicitation is now closed.
Next announcement anticipated May 2012.
