Draft 2017 Funded Priorities List

On September 27, 2017, the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) announces the intention to vote no sooner than October 5, 2017 on the approval of the Final 2017 Funded Priorities List: Comprehensive Commitment and Planning Support (2017 CPS FPL) in accordance with the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf States Act (RESTORE Act). In approving the 2017 CPS FPL, the Council would provide funding to its members to enhance collaboration, coordination, public engagement and use of best available science needed to make efficient use of Gulf restoration funds resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. These funding awards would support the Council’s commitment to a coordinated approach to ecosystem restoration, as called for in the Comprehensive Plan Update 2016: Restoring the Gulf Coast’s Ecosystem and Economy. As part of finalizing the 2017 CPS FPL, the Council considered all public comments and developed the Draft 2017 Funded Priorities List: Comprehensive Plan Commitment and Planning Support Response to Public Comments.
