LISS CCMP Enhancement Award Program
Long Island Sound is one of North America's most urban and biologically diverse estuaries. While the Sound is a resource of extraordinary productivity, it is under significant stress. The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) and the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) administer the LISS Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) Enhancement Award Program to fund innovative, cost-effective project proposals aimed at protecting and restoring the Sound's living resources, water quality, and vital habitats; promoting sound land use, and engaging the public, educators and communities. Annual Enhancement priority topics are selected by the LISS Management Committee based on program needs.
Interested in working with the program? See our Contractor Opportunities page for open Requests for Proposals.
