Science and Technical Committee Grant Program

Research and Implementation

The Barnegat Bay Partnership typically solicits proposals for research or implementation projects in the fall/winter of each year through a Grant Funding (GFO). The GFO addresses priority items identified in our Strategic Plan, with a particular focus as determined by the Science and Technical Advisory Committee and Advisory Committee. The number and amount of awards varies depending upon the level of available funds, but matching funds or in-kind services are required.

FY19 Grant Funding Opportunity

The Barnegat Bay Partnership (BBP) is pleased to announce a FY19 Grant Funding Opportunity for projects that lead to improvements in water quality, especially those that reduce nutrients and especially in areas that have been classified as impaired, or to develop and implement conservation/restoration plans for ecologically sensitive habitats.  The BBP anticipates that a total of approximately $60,000 will be available to support one or more projects addressing these priorities.
