Marine debris grants available until Sept. 24

Letters of intent are due by Sept. 24 for the NOAA Marine Debris Program’s fiscal year 2022 grants.

The goal of the program is to create long-term, quantifiable ecological habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources, with priority consideration given to efforts targeting derelict fishing gear, abandoned and derelict vessels, and other medium and large-scale debris, organizers said.

NOAA will also fund projects in the U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada border regions, subject to additional eligibility criteria, the agency said.
