||INTERESTED APPLICANTS for these grants need to go through a state agency and should coordinate with Beth Huning, SFBJV Coordinator.
The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act established the National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant
Program to acquire, restore, and enhance wetlands in coastal States through competitive matching grants to State agencies. The primary goal of the NCWCGP is the long‐term conservation of coastal wetland ecosystems.
The Grant Program annually provides grants of up to $1 million to coastal and Great Lakes states, as well as U.S. territories to protect, restore and enhance coastal wetland ecosystems and associated uplands. The grants are funded through the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, which is supported by excise taxes on fishing equipment and motorboat fuel.
