Grant funds may be used for land acquisition, planning, permitting, monitoring and management.

-Restoration of historical or highly-degraded coastal wetlands areas or other aquatic resources that particularly relate to improving water quality.
-Removal of physical barriers such as bulkheads, culverts or dams and associated restoration activities.
-Land acquisition and associated planning, permitting, monitoring and management.
-Acquisition, restoration and enhancement projects may include educational and interpretive elements (such as sign and brochures) to educate the public.
-Reasonable organizational expenses, including staff, related to watershed improvement projects.

It is anticipated that grants will be awarded in the range of $10,000 to $250,000, and it is anticipated that grants will be awarded at both ends of this range.
