The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) provides matching grants and cooperative agreements for international coral reef conservation projects. CRCP solicits proposals that will support the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program Strategic Plan (Strategic Plan-2018) which uses a resilience-based management approach, focused on conservation that supports the ability of corals to withstand and recover from stress. All international tropical coral reef locations are eligible under this Federal Funding Opportunity with emphasis on the Wider Caribbean, South East Asia and South Pacific, and Micronesia.
In FY 2020, the CRCP will accept applications for cooperative agreements and grants up to a two-year project period focused on building international capacity for the effective ecosystem-based management of coral reef ecosystems.
