The NOAA Marine Debris Program offers several nationwide, competitive funding opportunities for marine debris projects. These include: removal grants, education and outreach grants, and research grants.
The goal of this RFP is to measurably reduce plastic pollution before it reaches the ocean. We support scientists working to fill key knowledge gaps around the flow of plastic from their sources into the ocean. We seek innovators, including conservationists, educators, and storytellers, who can develop solutions to effect behavior change in key stakeholders. Preference will be given to projects with higher potential for scaling and impact, and to applicants who are residents or citizens of the country where the work will be conducted.
