The Gulf Coast Council to Amend Initial Funded Priorities List

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) is proposing to amend its Initial Funded Priorities List (FPL) to make the State of Louisiana the direct recipient of the full funding amount previously approved for the Lowermost Mississippi River Management Program.

As approved in December 2015, the Lowermost Mississippi River Management Program provided for a 50/50 division of $9,300,000 in planning funds between the State of Louisiana and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Council is now considering providing the full amount of approved funding to the State of Louisiana in order to expedite this program.

Consistent with Section 4.3.3 of the Standard Operating Procedures, the Council is required to provide the public seven days notice in advance of the Council’s vote to approve or disapprove this proposed amendment.
