Coastal Zone Management Estuarine Research Reserves - #11.420

Grants may be used to cover the costs of land acquisition, development, research, education, operation and facilities construction for National Estuarine Research Reserves. Development and operation costs may include the administrative expenses necessary for implementing reserve programs. Grants are available to states for education projects at reserves. Competitive research grants are also available.




(1) For development grants: A letter from the Governor designating the lead agency for new reserve development; (2) for competitive research grant proposals which do not come from the lead agency: A letter from the reserve manager indicating formal support of the application by the lead agency; (3) for reserve operations, land acquisition, and construction: An application from the reserve lead agency or its designee. For all grants, a statement of work and budget estimate must be submitted. Costs will be determined in accordance with OMB Circular No. A-87 for state and local governments. OMB Circular No. A-87 applies to this program.

There are five types of awards to coastal States under the National Estuarine Research Reserve Program: (1) land acquisition; (2) development; (3) operation, education, monitoring; (4) research; and (5) facilities construction. Detailed criteria for the State's development of these awards and criteria for reviewing each award are provided in the regulations for the National Estuarine Research Reserves Program (15 CFR Part 921). Final regulations were published in the Federal Register, July 15, 1993.
