The Wetlands Recovery Project (WRP) is announcing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2018-2019 Community Wetland Restoration Grant Program (CWRGP). The Program provides grants of $1,000 to $30,000 for community-based restoration projects in coastal wetlands and watersheds in the southern California region. The purpose of the CWRGP is to further the goals of the WRP Regional Strategy; build local capacity to plan and implement wetland restoration projects; promote community involvement in wetland restoration activities; and foster education about wetland ecosystems. The Program information, application guidelines, and application template are posted on the WRP's website.

Proposals should represent projects that are ready to implement upon acceptance. A proposed project should have clearly defined goals and outcomes that can be achieved on the order of a year. Contained in the application guidelines are the criteria that will be used to evaluate proposals, and the schedule for review and approval of potential projects. Examples of projects funded in past cycles of the Program can be found on the WRP website’s Project Board.
