Proposals are now being accepted for the Tampa Bay Environmental Restoration Fund, a strategic partnership between the Tampa Bay Estuary Program (TBEP) and Restore America's Estuaries (RAE).

This competitive grants program seeks applications for cost-effective projects that will implement the coastal, estuarine and freshwater wetland habitat and water quality restoration priorities that have been developed by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program and its partners, and outlined in the Tampa Bay Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP), Charting the Course.

Funding for the 2015 TBERF grant cycle has been provided by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, The Mosaic Company Foundation, and Hillsborough County to date. The Fund is designed to return added value to current and future Tampa Bay conservation initiatives and provides funding through a competitive application process for projects that will protect, restore or enhance the natural resources of Tampa Bay and its contributing watershed.

The TBERF-2015 Request for Proposal documents are available at the Tampa Bay Tech website.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by 3:00 pm EST, March 20, 2015. Late applications will not be accepted. Email completed proposals to Ron Hosler.
