NOAA Sea Grant to Support Over 300 Projects

NOAA Sea Grant announced yesterday grants totaling $15.9 million to support over 300 projects around the nation that help build resilient coastal communities and economies.

Through university, state and other partnerships, Sea Grant Programs will supplement the federal funding with an additional $7.9 million in non-federal matching funds, bringing the total investment to more than $23.8 million.

As more Americans depend on our nation’s coasts for cultural, economic, energy and recreational opportunities, ensuring the long-term vitality of coastal communities and economies is crucial,” said Leon Cammen, director of NOAA’s National Sea Grant College Program. “These grants support research, planning and outreach projects that will help coastal communities be more resilient to a range of natural hazards, water quality challenges, severe weather, energy needs and the effects of climate change.”

The projects are part of a larger effort by President Obama’s Administration to help reduce climate-related impacts on ocean, coastal and other resources and make the communities more resilient to climate change.

The full list of Sea Grant coastal resilience research and extension projects can be found here.
