Commissioners Court - Special Meeting
Accept award for 2008 CIAP Colonial Waterbird Project
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the Colonial Nesting Waterbird Enhancement Project, as part of the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) grant program.
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.
The goal of the Colonial Nesting Waterbird Enhancement project is to enhance and restore habitat, and manage and protect colonial waterbird populations within an existing island in Nueces Bay. The project will also increase public education, and monitor nesting success.
The total amount of the grant award is $165,154 and there is no match required. The grant period will run from September 20, 2012 through December 31, 2014. This project was included as part of the 2008 CIAP grant allocation projects.
