The Comprehensive Restoration Plan (CRP) and Hudson River Comprehensive Restoration Plan are blueprints to protect existing habitat and restore or enhance ecological characteristics of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary and Hudson River watershed. Each plan is organized around 12 Target Ecosystem Characteristics (TECs) that together define the structure, function and biological diversity of a restored estuary. To implement these plans, the New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program and its partners have been advancing projects throughout the estuary. More than 300 sites can be located using HEP’s interactive Restoration Activity Map.
Open Grant: Advancing Habitat Restoration in Disadvantaged Communities
The New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program is requesting proposals to support enhancement of sites recognized in the Hudson Raritan Estuary Comprehensive Restoration Plan (HRE CRP) or similar community-supported plans that are located in and serve residents of a disadvantaged community. HEP has adopted a definition of disadvantaged communities identified from the federal, state, and local perspective that can be explored using our mapping tool.
