RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a Subrecipient Grant Agreement with the Texas General Land Office for the Habitat Restoration and Conservation at Packery Channel project, as part of the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) grant program.
BACKGROUND
The Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) is intended to assist coastal states and coastal political subdivisions within those states that have either supported or been impacted in some measure, directly or indirectly, from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas exploration and development activities. CIAP is funded with federal royalties generated from offshore oil and gas leases. The CIAP program was authorized by the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
DISCUSSION
The goal of the Habitat Restoration and Conservation at Packery Channel project is to restore four acres of native habitat within the Packery Channel Nature Preserve Park. The total amount of the grant award is $550,773 and there is no match required. This project was applied for under the 2008 CIAP competitive grant competition.
