FY2016 Prevention through Education and Outreach: The NOAA Marine Debris Program, authorized in the Marine Debris Act (33 U.S.C. 1951-1958), provides funding to support eligible organizations to educate the public about the issue of marine debris through dedicated activities to prevent the introduction of marine debris. Funding for this purpose comes through the NOAA Marine Debris Program as appropriations to the Office of Response and Restoration, National Ocean Service. Projects awarded through this grant competition will work to address a specific marine debris issue by encouraging changes in behavior. Successful projects will also develop and implement activities to reduce and prevent marine debris by working with students, teachers, industries, or the public, and will engage these groups in active personal participation (e.g. a small-scale shoreline cleanup with students, other hands-on activities, etc.). Successful proposals through this solicitation will be funded through cooperative agreements. Funding of up to $750,000 is expected to be available for Marine Debris Prevention through Education and Outreach grants in FY2016. Typical awards will range from $30,000 - $75,000.
This solicitation is focused on efforts to prevent marine debris from entering the environment through education and outreach. It is not intended for large-scale debris removal projects, deployment of catchment basins, or scientific research.
