15.658 [ST. LAWRENCE ENVIRONMENT NATURAL RESOURCE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT AND RESTORATION PROGRAM]
Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, Funding Opportunity F19AS00328, 2019

For decades industrial facilities in Massena, NY, released hazardous substances to the St. Lawrence River environment. Production wastes and associated contaminants (e.g., PCBs, PAHs, fluoride, and metals) from these facilities were disposed of through outfalls into rivers and streams, in on-site disposal sites, and via aerial emissions. The contaminants were then transported throughout the environment via hydrological, aerial, and biological pathways, exposing and causing corresponding injury to natural resources. A Trustee Council formed to assess injuries, determine natural resource damages, and develop a restoration plan consists of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, NOAA, and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe Environment Division. This notice requests that interested parties submit a proposal for natural resource restoration projects consistent with the 2013 St. Lawrence River Environment Natural Resource Damage Assessment Restoration and Compensation Determination Plan and in accordance with guidance provided in the attachments at Grants.gov. The closing date for applications is October 15, 2019. Estimated total program funding consists of about $8M. https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=319115
