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.
Pilot Implementation of the Long Island Sound Study Sentinel Monitoring Program
NEIWPCC is inviting proposals for the implementation of pilot monitoring of climate change indices (sentinels) at locations within the coastal area boundary of Long Island Sound (LIS). The purpose of this project is to collect, synthesize, and assess new and historical datasets in the context of climate change to identify trends and data gaps for one or more sentinels of climate change in LIS. The results of the project will assist with the management of natural resources in and around LISS.
Proposals should be submitted via email as described in the RFP Announcement, and must be received no later than 11:59 PM EST, Friday, May 3, 2013.
For more information on this request for proposals, contact Erin Jacobs, NEIWPCC’s Long Island Sound Program Manager.
