Budget of the Protected Resources Program

Protected Resources Program Budget information from Fiscal Year 2004 enacted to the President's Budget Request for Fiscal Year 2018

The President's FY 2018 Budget Request is for $179,020,000 for the Protected Resources Program and for changes that include:

Marine Mammals, Sea Turtles, and Other Species: Prescott Grants Program

NOAA proposes a decrease of $3,044,000 to eliminate funding for the John H. Prescott Marine Mammal Rescue Assistance Grants program in FY 2018. With this reduction there would be no funding for competitive grants to marine mammal stranding network organizations to rescue, rehabilitate, or investigate sick or injured marine mammals or to determine the cause of death of marine mammals. This is the only federal funding source for the stranding network; however, some network members may still operate in the absence of Prescott Grants, depending on the availability of private funding. Eliminating funding for this program will also decrease data and resources from the stranding network, which helps NOAA establish links between marine mammal health and the condition of coastal ecosystems.
