RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the Fairgrounds and Upper Oso Drainage Control Phase 2 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. Two hundred and fifty million dollars will be divided annually from fiscal years 2007 through 2010 among the coastal states of Alabama, Alaska, California, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
DISCUSSION
The goal of the Fairgrounds and Upper Oso Drainage Control Phase 2 project is to continue improving the water quality in the Oso Creek watershed by improving and alleviating some of the most critical flooding areas in the northwest area of watershed that connect directly with Oso Bay.

The total amount of the grant award is $427,014 and there is no match required. The grant period will run from September 19, 2012 through December 31, 2014. This project was included as part of the 2009/2010 CIAP grant allocation projects.
