Marine Debris Funding Opportunities (11.999)

After a disaster, NOAA’s Marine Debris Program works with states and territories to determine additional marine debris removal needs. Subject to appropriation of funds by Congress, NOAA's Marine Debris Program may receive disaster relief supplemental funding to assess, remove, and dispose of disaster-related marine debris. Funding supports post-storm surveys and mapping of marine debris accumulation hot spots, and the removal and disposal of vessels, derelict fishing gear and traps, damaged piers, pilings and other large-scale debris.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program offers several nationwide, competitive funding opportunities for marine debris projects. These include: removal, prevention, and research grants.
