NATURAL RESOURCE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT AND RESTORATION PROGRAM
Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, Funding Opportunity F19AS00179, 2019

Responsible Parties historically discharged a variety of hazardous wastes, including Hg, PCBs, PAHs, and chlorinated benzenes into Onondaga Lake, its tributaries, and other wetland and upland areas. These releases contributed to injuries to natural resources. The settlement of the natural resource damage claim with the Responsible Parties provides for a suite of ecological restoration projects designed to compensate for damage to natural resources. Fish and Wildlife Ecological Services will use the information applicants provide to conduct a competitive review and select projects for funding. The restoration projects are to be safe and cost-effective; address injured resources; consider actual and anticipated conditions; have a reasonable likelihood of success; and be consistent with applicable laws and policies. For this round of funding, about $1M will be available to as many as 10 qualifying projects. The closing date for applications is July 30, 2019. The NRDAR Program is authorized by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act; Oil Pollution Act; CERCLA; and Fish and Wildlife Act. https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=314750
