Project Description

This project will provide planning assistance to support MDEQis coordinated restoration planning effort to maximize the effectiveness of coordination of restoration in the Gulf Coast Region and the development of new and/or amended State Expenditure Plan(s). The RESTORE Councilis Initial Comprehensive Plan outlines commitments to coordination and leveraging. Mississippi has also established leveraging and coordination as core principles to maximize the effectiveness of restoration being implemented in the Mississippi coastal landscape. Across the restoration landscape there are coordination needs to enhance leveraging, integration, and compatibility in the development of new and/or amended MSEPs. Coordination activities may include, but are not limited to, participation in RESTORE Council activities directly related to this activity, collaboration of funding efforts to ensure compatibility and coordination of projects being considered to be placed on the MSEP, stakeholder engagement, project identification, evaluation, and development, the identification of the appropriate funding source to implement a project, and planning activities within Mississippi and adjacent states. This project will also enable Mississippi to continue to apply this shared commitment of coordination and leveraging in subsequent MSEP development. Activities include program oversight and management and the development, coordination, and execution of the grant award between MDEQ and the RESTORE Council.
