During Habitat Month, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is recommending $8.2 million in funding to 15 partners through the Community-based Restoration Program Coastal and Marine Habitat Restoration Grants.

These investments will restore habitat in 10 states and Puerto Rico and leverage a total of $13 million of non-federal funds over the next three years to maximize the impact and lead to lasting results for the communities, economy and the environment.

The recommended projects will restore habitat for coastal and marine species by opening rivers, reconnecting rivers to their floodplains, and reducing coastal runoff and providing other benefits to coral reefs.

The recipients, and the more than 30 additional partners supporting the projects, come from all sectors, including nonprofits, federal, state and local agencies, tribes, private sector businesses and academia.

NOAA’s Community-based Restoration Program has partnered with more than 2,800 organizations to take on more than 2,000 projects since 1996.
