The original deadline for receipt of proposals was 11:59 p.m., EST, on November 30, 2009. Due to State fiscal constraints and uncertainties at the time of the original solicitation, some applicants may not have been able to submit proposals, and therefore the applications received totaled less than the funds available. Therefore, NOAA re-opens the solicitation period to provide applicants the opportunity to submit proposals. The deadline for the receipt of proposals is 11:59 p.m. EST on February 19, 2010 for both electronic and paper applications. Applicants are directed to the July 16, 2009 Federal Register notice and Federal Funding Opportunity announcement for information on the program’s priorities, application requirements, evaluation criteria, and selection process for this solicitation.

Consequently, as part of an applicant’s package, and under their description of their program activities, applicants are required to provide detailed information on the activities to be conducted, locations, sites, species and habitat to be affected, possible construction activities, and any environmental concerns that may exist (e.g., the use and disposal of hazardous or toxic chemicals, introduction of nonindigenous species, impacts to endangered and threatened species, aquaculture projects, and impacts to coral reef systems).

Applicants will also be required to cooperate with NOAA in identifying feasible measures to reduce or avoid any identified adverse environmental impacts of their proposal. The failure to do so shall be grounds for not selecting an application.
