About this grant
The Gulf Restoration Network is a regional environmental organization that represents a diverse partnership of groups working to protect and restore the Gulf of Mexico’s coastline and its connected wetlands. With previous Mott support, the grantee coordinated groups across the five Gulf Coast states, provided technical information and policy analyses, and conducted public outreach in support of increased coastal protections. Currently, the grantee is focused on helping the coastline and coastal communities recover from the oil released during the 2010 drilling disaster. This general purpose grant increase will help the grantee lead a regional collaborative to guide resources to high priority restoration projects and establish a regional citizens advisory committee to help oversee the safety of coastal and off-shore oil extraction activities.
