This project supports restoration planning for the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (LA TIG) to carry out the restoration goals identified in the Final Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan and Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PDARP/PEIS), and specifically, for the LA TIG to conduct restoration planning to evaluate projects that would restore for injury to wetlands, coastal, and nearshore habitats caused by the the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The funds are being used to develop, draft, and finalize a restoration plan and the environmental impact analyses as required by the Oil Pollution Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and the Trustees' PDARP/PEIS.
