Puget Sound Marine and Nearshore Grant Program Funding actions that advance Puget Sound recovery by protecting and restoring marine
and nearshore habitats and ecosystem functions
The Puget Sound Marine and Nearshore Grant Program, also known as the Marine and Nearshore Lead Organization, is a partnership program of the Washington Departments of Fish and Wildlife and Natural Resources. We administer funds awarded to us by the federal Environmental Protection Agency through the National Estuary Program. The projects we fund implement priorities of the Action Agenda for Puget Sound that protect and restore marine and nearshore habitat and ecosystem functions. By protecting and enhancing habitat, our investments also promote Puget Sound salmon recovery.
Our program does not anticipate any future funding opportunities.
Our investments address the greatest threats to Puget Sound marine and nearshore habitats. Projects have included:
Reducing shoreline armoring
Shoreline landowner stewardship
Effective shoreline policy and regulation
Oil spill preparedness and response
Invasive species detection and prevention
Reducing derelict fishing nets
Shoreline and estuary restoration and acquisition
