Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, governmental agencies, tribes, and educational institutions to address the aftereffects of hurricanes and storms in eligible locations. Funding is intended for projects related to the assessment, removal, and disposal of marine debris from coastal habitats and nearshore waters of coastal counties in the Gulf of Mexico impacted by hurricanes Ida, Laura, Delta, and Sally.

National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) established the Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund to support projects to assess, remove, and dispose of marine debris in and around coastal communities impacted hurricanes and other episodic storm events. 

The majority of funds are anticipated to support direct removal and proper disposal efforts although limited funding may also be available for assessment and capacity building for future response. This program will prioritize projects that provide dual benefits – both benefit for human communities and benefits for fish and wildlife. The program will use assessment and prioritization efforts conducted by local, state, and federal response agencies or their designees to prioritize projects that will address marine debris in areas of greatest impact and most critical to prevent communities and ecosystems from further harm.

All proposals must clearly describe how projects will support achieving the overall goals of the Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund, including:

  • Relative benefit to coastal communities from reducing the impact of marine debris to properties and community infrastructure (beaches, marinas), assets of economic importance (fisheries, recreation), and navigational safety; and
  • Anticipated enhancement of the ecological integrity and functionality of ecosystems and/or prevention of further harm (scouring, entanglement) to fish and wildlife and their habitats.

Due to the emergency nature of these funds, the Hurricane Response Marine Debris Removal Fund will primarily fund projects that are ready for direct clean-up efforts to remove and dispose of marine debris that resulted from the storms to provide the most accelerated and comprehensive outcomes for impacted coastal resources and communities.  Eligible projects will include marine debris assessment and/or removal activities within the coastal uplands, shorelines and coastal waterways of the affected areas, with the goal of preventing further harm to economic and ecological resources of importance to impacted coastal resources and communities.
