FY2020 Marine Debris Prevention: The NOAA Marine Debris Program, authorized in the Marine Debris Act (33 U.S.C. 1951-1958), 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 (such as students, teachers, state or local government, industries, or the public) 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. Successful proposals through this solicitation will be funded through cooperative agreements. Funding of up to $2,000,000 is expected to be available for Marine Debris Prevention grants in FY2020. Typical awards will range from $50,000 - $150,000. Funding for this purpose comes through the NOAA Marine Debris Program as appropriations to the Office of Response and Restoration, National Ocean Service. 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. It is not intended for large-scale debris removal projects or scientific research.
