Examples of funded projects...
Grants and cooperative agreements awarded to States and local governments, colleges, universities interstate agencies and nonprofit organizations are for nonpoint source implementation, water quality monitoring, education and outreach, living resources and habitat restoration and program support. Examples of projects funded in FY2004: (1) Food-web Monitoring for Adaptive Multi-species Management Outcomes: Food web monitoring data for multi-species management models; adaptive fisheries management plans that can differentiate between water quality and harvesting impacts on targeted species; fisheries management approaches that incorporate fish mortality due to jellyfishes (gelatinous zooplankton); indexes of blue crab larval life stage abundance useful to crab management; biological indicators of ecosystem response to water quality criteria attainment, ecosystem health, food web adequacy, and carrying capacity in open water (pelagic) habitats; (2) Nitrogen Deposition Monitoring Site Operation Outcomes: Collection of deposition data, under the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) sampling protocol, in Rockingham County, Virginia; (3) Enhanced Monitoring to Improve the Assessment of Sediment and Nutrient Load Reductions in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Outcomes: The enhanced monitoring will result in an increased ability to measure load reductions, provide data for verification and calibration of CBP watershed and water quality model, and USGS SPARROW model, and assess progress in meeting the water-quality criteria.; (4) Refine projections of future land cover/ land use change (?update critical data layers for watershed model and vulnerability analysis?); (5) Environmentally Sensitive Development Practices ? Demonstration Project: Working with individual local governments, conduct demonstration projects on how to revise zoning, codes and ordinances to incorporate environmentally sensitive design practices; (6) Enhanced NRT Cost Analysis: Examine the viability of enhanced nutrient reduction to achieve additional reductions, using alternative techniques or process/operational changes. Determination of cost effective methods to further reduction effluent concentrations; (7) Evaluation of Land Application & Water Reuse as a Nutrient Removal Technique: Explore viability of water reuse, as an alternate to discharging effluent to surface waters, as a means to point source load reductions; and (8) Data Management: Implement distributed data and information servers networked to provide direct public access to synthesized Bay restoration and protection related data and information.
About this section
This section indicates the different types of projects which have been funded in the past. Only projects funded under Project Grants or Direct Payments for Specified Use should be listed here. The examples give potential applicants an idea of the types of projects that may be accepted for funding. The agency should list at least five examples of the most recently funded projects.
