ACFHP and USFWS Seek Habitat Projects [Closes 9/21/2015]

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 through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) 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.

You must contact your U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Officer by Friday, August 28, 2015, and full applications must be received by Monday, September 21, 2015 at midnight for consideration.
