Gulf Coast Draft FPL – Up for Discussion

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) recently released a draft Initial Funded Priorities List that would fund approximately $139.6 million in restoration activities.

The funds are derived from the recent settlement with Transocean Deepwater Inc. The Council will host a series of public meetings across the Gulf Coast to discuss the priorities, and seek public and tribal comments. The list is available for review and comment through September 28, 2015.

The Council is proposing to focus on 10 key watersheds across the Gulf to address critical ecosystem needs in high priority locations. The Council will also propose a suite of Gulf-wide investments designed to support holistic ecosystem restoration and lay the foundation for future success.
