FY2020 Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership Applications

Friday, September 13, 2019

The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) is requesting project applications to restore and conserve habitat necessary to support coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fish species along the U.S. Atlantic Coast. Federal funding available under the National Fish Habitat Action Plan (NFHAP) will be used to support the top ranked proposals. To ensure available funding is being directed most effectively, projects should be geared toward meeting ACFHP’s conservation objectives described in its Conservation Strategic Plan. The maximum amount available for an individual project is $50,000.

Guidelines for the use of NFHAP funds can be found here. All applicants are encouraged to review this guidance. These funds can only be used for on-the-ground habitat conservation projects and related design and monitoring activities. They may not be used for acquisition in fee or easement. All projects must have a minimum of a 1:1 funding from partner contributions, and greater match is encouraged.
