Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Partnership Grant: The NOAA Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Program invites applications requesting funding to establish one or more regional habitat restoration partnership(s) for 1 to 3 years. The partnership(s) is expected to catalyze the implementation of habitat restoration projects that will benefit coastal resources through improved Great Lakes habitat quality. The centerpiece of the program will be one or more restoration projects in an Area of Concern that: are based on strong science and data availability; are ecosystem focused; and, involve significant problems and lake-wide improvements. Project areas should include locations where: (1) Maximum use can be made of on-going restoration efforts and partnerships, (2) availability of matching funds are met, (3) the problem is significant to the Great Lakes region, NOAA's mission and established priorities, and, (4) there is a scientific merit in restoration. NOAA envisions working jointly on such a partnership(s) through its Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Program (GLHRP) to fund and administer projects that support community- identified priorities such as: (1) Restoring and enhancing critical, nearshore areas, tributaries and connecting channels; (2) remediating basin-wide sources of stress; (3) protecting healthy functioning areas; and, (4) monitoring ecosystem health. This document describes the types of partnership(s) that NOAA envisions establishing, portrays the qualities that NOAA has found to be ideal in a partnership, and describes criteria under which applications will be evaluated for funding consideration. The partnership application(s) selected through this announcement must be in support of ongoing efforts in an Area of Concern (AOC) and will be implemented through a cooperative agreement. The selection process is anticipated to be highly competitive. Funding of up to $1 million may be available to establish one or more habitat restoration partnership(s) in 2008, and annual funding is anticipated to maintain them for 1 to 3 years duration. Definitions of Terms: (1) The Great Lakes region will be defined by the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement: Article 1.(h) ``Great Lakes System: means all of the streams, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water that are within the drainage basin on the St. Lawrence River at or upstream from the point at which this river becomes the international boundary between Canada and the United States.'' (2) Areas of Concern are severely degraded geographic areas within the Great Lakes Basin. They are defined by the U.S.-Canada Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (Annex 2 of the 1987 Protocol) as ``geographic areas that fail to meet the general specific objectives of the agreement where such failure has caused or is likely to cause impairment of beneficial use of the area's ability to support aquatic life.
