CRMC Funds Nine Restoration Projects

The RI Coastal Resources Management Council has awarded funding for nine habitat restoration projects through its RI Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration Trust Fund (CEHRTF).

The Council approved the funding at the March 10 semi-monthly meeting in Providence.

Projects approved for funding include two anadromous fish passage restoration projects, a salt marsh restoration project, a barrier beach restoration project, two coastal upland restoration projects, and one equipment request for the RI Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM).

Project locations span the entire state, from Napatree Point in Westerly to Quicksand Pond in Little Compton, and to Blackstone Park in upper Narragansett Bay in Providence.

To date and including this year, the Trust Fund has awarded $2.7 million for 105 projects, which have leveraged more than $23 million in matching funds. In its 12 years, the Trust Fund has helped to restore over 300 acres of Rhode Island.
