The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) is requesting project applications to restore and conserve habitat necessary to support coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fish species along the Atlantic Coast. To ensure available funding is being directed most effectively, projects should be geared toward meeting ACFHP's protection and restoration objectives described in its Conservation Strategic Plan. These funds can only be used for on-the-ground habitat conservation and improvement projects and related design and monitoring activities. You must contact your U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Officer by Friday, August 28, 2015, and full applications must be received by Monday, September 21, 2015 at midnight for consideration.
This year, SARP, with funding from the US Fish and Wildlife Service/National Fish Habitat Partnership, will support projects in or associated with watersheds in the conservation focus areas throughout the SARP geography (see conservation focus areas map in the application package). NFHP funding provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and institutions to participate in the ongoing process of conservation, management and restoration. Applicants are strongly urged to discuss project ideas and questions prior to submitting a project for consideration.
