CPRA Accepting Proposals for Partnership Fund

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is accepting proposals for the FY 2016 Conservation and Restoration Partnership fund until October 21, 2015.

This year the Partnership Fund has dedicated $1 million to provide matching funds for projects aimed at coastal conservation and restoration.

The state will use this funding to take advantage of grants, donations and other private/public partnership opportunities to support the implementation of high priority coastal restoration projects.

Proposals for coastal conservation and restoration projects that would benefit from additional funding are requested. Proposals should include a brief description of the project purpose, features, conceptual design, project area map and description of how it contributes to the criteria listed below.

Projects will be evaluated and prioritized based on the following criteria:

  1. Acreage conserved/restored;
  2. Synergism with other conservation/restoration efforts;
  3. Project constructability;
  4. Matching funds;
  5. Consistency with the objectives of the 2012 Coastal Master Plan.

A selection committee made up of CPRA scientists and engineers will review and evaluate each proposed project based on the criteria listed above. Projects selected for funding will be notified by November 30th.
