02/07/20 11:59 PM EST Postmark or Receipt
Grants starting at $50,000 to USA and territories nonprofits, for-profits, government agencies, and IHEs to prevent debris in coastal and marine environments. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended for projects that promote behavioral changes in the general public to address specific marine debris issues.
The Marine Debris Program provides funding to prevent the introduction of marine debris into the marine and coastal environment. Projects awarded through this grant competition will actively engage and educate a target audience in hands-on programs designed to raise awareness, reduce barriers to marine debris prevention (e.g., lack of access to waste receptacles or alternatives to single-use items), and encourage and support changes in behaviors to ensure long-term prevention of marine debris.
This solicitation is focused on efforts to prevent marine debris from entering the environment through targeted education and outreach efforts, as well as activities that aim to change behaviors related to common marine debris issues.
GrantWatch ID#: 182245
The NOAA MDP anticipates that between 8 and 15 awards will be made under this solicitation.

Applications should cover a project period of performance from one to two years in duration. If behavior change monitoring activities are to be conducted during the project, NOAA may consider applications with a period of performance beyond two years as long as there is reasonable justification provided, however, NOAA expects that all primary project activities would be completed within two years of the start date of the award.
