Innovative Source Reduction for Land-Based Sources of Marine Debris from Coastal Watersheds

The U. S. EPA Region 9 seeks proposals for projects that restore and protect water quality and habitat of coastal waters, estuaries, bays, near shore, and ocean waters through innovative and comprehensive approaches to reducing land-based sources of marine debris.

The goal is to reduce marine


debris from coastal watersheds with true source reduction practices, not with the more commonly used capture and removal practices such as inserting catch basin screens and enhancing street sweeping.

Proposals should demonstrate and promote the economic benefits of source reduction to business and government, inspire innovative local policies promoting litter prevention, and foster creative collaborative partnerships between local government, non-profits, and business.

Proposals that principally support recycling, clean-up, treatment, trash capture/removal, plastic bag and/or polystyrene bans, or disposal activities will not be considered for funding.
