Habitat Restoration Grants


HEP funding supports both targeted research and the development of site-specific concept plans. Research has focused characterizing the baseline conditions and advancing and testing monitoring and restoration techniques for specific Target Ecosystem Characteristics across a waterway or the entire estuary. Site-specific funding has been used to develop concept restoration plans to test possibilities and develop application for implementation.

The New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program is currently not accepting proposals.
