announcing a Request for Applications (RFA) to provide the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) partners with support for CBP’s Goal Implementation Teams (GITs), designated Work Groups, and Action Teams to meet their responsibilities, targets, outcomes and goals under the 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed
The GITs, designated Work Groups, and Action Teams are the primary organizations responsible for coordinating CBP activities under the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement (http://www.chesapeakebay.net/chesapeakebaywatershedagreement/page).
This includes development of management strategies for reaching programmatic goals and outcomes.
The management strategies require data collection and analysis, metrics development, measurement, economic analysis, meeting facilitation, and other types of work.
This RFA is seeking costeffective applications from eligible applicants for establishing and administering a program to support projects proposed by the GITs.
CBP partners include federal agencies, seven watershed jurisdictions, and many non-federal organizations; however, work funded under this RFA will support the seven watershed jurisdictions and other non-federal partners.
The seven watershed jurisdictions are Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
