SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Collection of estuary habitat restoration project information 
(e.g., location, habitat type, goals, status, monitoring information) 
is in process in order to continue to populate a restoration project 
database mandated by the Estuary Restoration Act (ERA) of 2000. The 
National Estuaries Restoration Inventory (NERI) contains information 
for estuary habitat restoration projects funded through the ERA as well 
as non-ERA project data that meet quality control requirements and data 
standards established under the Act. The database provides information 
to improve restoration methods, provides the basis for required reports 
to Congress, and tracks estuary habitat acreage restored. It is 
accessible to the public via the Internet for data queries and project 
reports. Recipients of ERA funds are required to submit specific 
information on habitat restoration projects into the NERI database 
through an interactive Web site available over the Internet (https://neri.noaa.gov/). The projects that are not funded through the ERA can 
be voluntarily entered into the database by project managers. Other 
Federal agencies and private grant programs may also require recipients 
to enter project information in the NERI database.

II. Method of Collection

    Project managers will electronically submit estuary restoration 
project information via NOAA's National Estuaries Restoration Inventory 
(NERI) Web site. The Web site contains a user-friendly data entry 
interface for project managers to enter and submit project information 
to the NERI database. To facilitate the collection of information 
through the data entry interface, NOAA's National Marine Fisheries 
Service (NMFS) provides worksheets containing database fields that can 
be downloaded and printed from the Web site. These worksheets can be 
used by project managers to guide information collection, and can then 
serve as a reference as project managers enter project information 
through the Web site. The reporting forms are also available in paper 
format to be sent to project managers as necessary.
