NOAA Fisheries Headquarters: Wetland restoration projects in CWPPRA program are utilized for protecting and restoring eroding coastal marshes. The Community-based Restoration Program (CRP) provides funding to implement on-the-ground habitat restoration projects to benefit marine, estaurine and reparian habitats, including but not limited to salt marshes, seagrass beds, coral reefs, mangrove forests, and freshwater habitat important to anadromous fisheries, predominantly in coastal areas around the United States. In FY 2003, the Community-based Restoration Program awarded over $5.5M that resulted in 113 restoration projects in 20 coastalstates through direct funding and partnership sub-awards. The projects included the removal of river blockages that will restore access and passage for anadromous fish in Alaska, re-vegetation of degraded salt marshes in San Francisco Bay,California, large-scale restoration of tidally restricted coastal wetlands in Massachusetts, dam removals in Pennsylvania and the restoration of oyster reefs in South Carolina and Georgia. The Office of Habitat Conservation also provides funding for coral reef conservation activities. Coral Reef: In past years, Coral Reef Conservation grants were awarded for MPA development and effectiveness, outreach and education activities, training manuals and guides, enforcement training, capacity building, essential fish habitat mapping and assessment, coral reef trade, sustainable use and management of the live reef fishes, watershed management, socioeconomic monitoring, and community-based management and conservation.
