Hi Hood Canal LIO partners,

The Habitat Strategic Initiative Lead for the Puget Sound Action Agenda released their RFP for EPA National Estuary Program (NEP) funds. Applications will be accepted until Dec 6th.

Restoration project sponsors should especially check out Investment Priority B: Project Development and Readiness (starting on pg. 12), which offers funding for early project development phases that are otherwise difficult to fund. 

See the links below for more information. Let myself or Lead Entity Coordinator Alicia Olivas know how HCCC can help support you in this process.
