NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Grants Program

The Coral Reef Conservation Act authorizes the Secretary of Commerce, through the NOAA administrator, to issue matching grants of financial assistance for broad-based coral reef conservation activities, consistent with the purposes of the Act.

The CRCP supports six categories of grants through its NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Grant Program, as well as the two programs listed below:

The Coral Reef Conservation Fund – The Coral Reef Conservation Fund is a partnership between NOAA and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), which provides matching grants to build public-private partnerships for coral reef conservation.

NOAA Coral Reef Management Fellowship – This Fellowship was established to respond to the need for additional coral reef management capacity and capability in the U.S. Flag islands.
