and NOAA trust resources.

Projects awarded through this grant competition will create long-term, quantifiable ecological habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources through on-the-ground marine debris removal activities, with priority for those targeting derelict fishing gear and other medium- and large-scale debris.

Projects should also foster awareness of the effects of marine debris to further the conservation of living marine resource habitats, and contribute to the understanding of marine debris composition, distribution and impacts.

Successful proposals through this solicitation will be funded through cooperative agreements.

Funding of up to $2,000,000 is expected to be available for Community-based Marine Debris Removal Project Grants in Fiscal Year 201 8. Typical awards will range from $50,000 to $150,00 0. Funding for this grant competition comes through the NOAA Marine Debris Program as appropriations to the Office of Response and Restoration, National Ocean Service.
