Cooperative Agreement, Grant
On behalf of the New Bedford Harbor Trustee Council (Council), NMFS, serving as the Administrative Trustee to the Council, announces the availability of funds for projects that will construct and operate a shellfish growout facility or
facilities that will provide the New Bedford Harbor Regional Shellfish Restoration Committee (RSRC) with quahog (Mercenaria mercenaria) seed annually for a minimum of five years to enhance shellfish populations in the New Bedford Harbor environment. Successful grantees shall also be responsible for developing and implementing a monitoring plan, in coordination with the RSRC, to monitor the survival success and growth rates of the growout facility shellfish
seed that is planted in the New Bedford Harbor Environment. The shellfish growout facility or facilities must be located in the City of New Bedford or the Towns of Fairhaven or Dartmouth, Massachusetts to facilitate interaction between the growout facility and the RSRC, and to maximize outreach and education opportunities among the communities affected by the New Bedford Harbor PCB contamination. Depending on the level of Federal involvement in these
projects, selected recipients will enter into either a cooperative agreement or grant. Total anticipated funding of up to $500,000 over a five-year period is available under this solicitation.
