Public Comment Period- Gulf of Mexico Habitat Restoration via Conservation Corps Partnerships

Beginning today, the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) seeks public review and comment on a proposed amendment of its 2015 Initial Funded Priorities List (2015 FPL) to approve additional time and funding for the Gulf Coast Conservation Corps (GCCC) Program. This funding would provide for a short-term extension of the GCCC Program while the Council considers longer-term funding through inclusion in its next FPL, known as FPL 3b. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce/National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (DOC/NOAA) and the U.S. Department of the Interior/Bureau of Indian Affairs (DOI/BIA). This 30-day public review and comment period on Gulf of Mexico Habitat Restoration via Conservation Corps Partnerships amendment will conclude at 11:59 pm CST on February 14, 2020.
The RESTORE Council will host and record a live public webinar today at 2:30 pm (CDT). You are encouraged to register for the webinar prior to the start time. Once registered, a link to access the webinar will be sent to the email address provided during registration. During each live webinar, Council staff will present an overview of the amendment and respond to selected questions from webinar participants. A recording of the presentation and a list of all questions and responses from each webinar will be posted at www.restorethegulf.gov. Please forward this invitation to others who may be interested in the RESTORE Council's activities.
