Grants to USA and Territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, for-profit organizations, tribes, and educational institutions to dispose, remove, and assess marine litter around and in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and the Northern Marianas Islands coastal communities as a result of Typhoon Yutu and hurricanes Michael and Florence. Funded projects will reduce debris, mitigate impact to communities and industry, and improve fish and wildlife habitats.
The Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund will support projects that address marine debris that was caused by or moved by the storms.
This program will prioritize projects that provide dual benefits – both benefits for human communities and benefits for fish and wildlife. The program will use existing assessment and prioritization efforts conducted by local, state, and federal response agencies to prioritize projects that will address marine debris in areas of greatest impact and most critical to prevent communities and ecosystems from further harm. A limited amount of removal funding will be available to communities that have not yet fully assessed marine debris in the coastal zone.
All proposals must clearly describe how projects will support achieving the overall goals of the Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund, including:
Due to the emergency nature of these funds, the Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund will primarily fund projects that are ready for direct clean-up efforts to remove and dispose of marine debris that resulted from the storms to provide the most accelerated and comprehensive outcomes for impacted coastal resources and communities. Eligible projects will include marine debris assessment and/or removal activities within the coastal uplands, shorelines and coastal waterways of the affected areas, with the goal of preventing further harm to economic and ecological resources of importance to impacted coastal resources and communities.
Projects will be prioritized based on the targeted debris’ existing or potential impact on coastal resources and communities and to prevent further harm to sensitive habitats (including but not limited to corals and sea grasses) and species (ESA listed species). Priority will be given to projects that have already completed a marine debris assessment to prioritize debris from the storm(s) and where hazardous materials have already been addressed. Projects that have secured all necessary permits and have mapped out all disposal and recycling logistics will also receive higher priority for funding.
Assessment work may be included to locate submerged debris and help prioritize removal efforts.
