On February 11, 2020, NOAA is hosting a webinar for potential applicants to learn more about the current Ruth Gates Coral Restoration Innovation Grants opportunity. The webinar will begin at 4 p.m. EST and last for approximately 1 hour.
- Learn about funding priorities and the application process.
- Receive tips for submitting proposals.
- Have the opportunity to ask questions.
On January 16, NOAA announced the availability of approximately $500,000 for coral restoration projects in honor of Dr. Ruth Gates.
Globally, coral reefs are rapidly declining in health. Some coral restoration efforts have been successful at a local level. The development of innovative interventions are needed to improve the efficiency and long-term effectiveness of coral restoration activities. This will allow us to restore resilient, genetically diverse, and reproductively viable coral populations at a larger scale.
This is the first competition under the new Ruth Gates Coral Restoration Innovation Grants. Projects funded through this opportunity will support:
- Research and development of interventions to improve coral resilience to environmental stressors.
- Research, development, and field-testing of novel techniques to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of coral population enhancement.
The competition is in direct response to the recently completed National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study on Interventions to Increase the Resilience of Coral Reefs.
