RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the acceptance of a Notice of Financial Assistance Award from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the Hazel Bazemore Critical Habitat Debris Removal and Restoration, Phase II 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 Hazel Bazemore Critical Habitat Debris Removal and Restoration, Phase II project was to reimburse the contractual fees for the ongoing debris removal erosion control, native vegetation restoration, and habitat protection components of the project in accordance with the recommended environmental plan used in the 2008 CIAP project.

The total amount of the grant award is $427,013.31 and there is no match required. This project was included as part of the 2009/2010 CIAP grant allocation projects. Some of the activities in this project have already been completed so $412,786.92 can be drawn down immediately, as is allowed by the grantor.
