The Chesapeake Bay Trust (the Trust), the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announce a request for proposals for its Restoration Research Grant Program. The goal of this grant program is to answer several key restoration questions. It is the hope of the funding partners that answering these questions will ultimately lead to increased confidence in proposed restoration project outcomes, clarification of the optimal site conditions in which to apply particular restoration techniques, information useful to regulatory agencies in project permitting, and information that will help guide monitoring programs. While research is needed in the realm of many different restoration practices, this year’s opportunity dedicated to key restoration research questions that focus on stream practices, as opposed to traditional stormwater management in the upland or other restoration practices.
Deadline: March 19, 2015 at 5pm
