About this grant

A regional environmental organization, the Gulf Restoration Network is a diverse partnership of citizens and organizations committed to protecting and restoring the Gulf of Mexico’s coastal lands and waters and their connected freshwater ecosystems. With previous support, the network advanced its mission through public education, assisting citizen groups, facilitating broad-based collaborations, conducting technical reviews of government policies, and monitoring policy implementation. It is anticipated that this grant increase, will help offset costs associated with the network’s regional response to the BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. These efforts will include independent monitoring of agency and corporate clean-up efforts and sharing up-to-date information across the region.
