The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) is requesting project applications to restore and conserve habitat necessary to support coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fish species along the Atlantic Coast. Federal funding available under the National Fish Habitat Action Plan will be used to support the top ranked proposals. To ensure available funding is being directed most effectively, projects should be geared toward meeting ACFHP’s protection and restoration objectives described in its Conservation Strategic Plan. The maximum amount available for an individual project is $50,000. These funds can only be used for on-the-ground habitat conservation and improvement projects and related design and monitoring activities. The application has been modified this year to include a question on ACFHP’s recently released Fish Habitat Conservation Area Mapping and Prioritization Project, among other updates.
Applications in MS Word format must be received by Friday, October 16, 2020 at midnight for consideration.
