"The NOAA Marine Debris Program provides funding to support eligible organizations to educate the public about the issue of marine debris through dedicated activities to prevent the introduction of marine debris. Projects awarded through this grant competition will work to address a specific marine debris issue by encouraging changes in behavior. Successful projects will also develop and implement activities to reduce and prevent marine debris by working with students, teachers, industries, or the public, and will engage these groups in active personal participation (e.g. a small-scale shoreline cleanup with students, other hands-on activities, etc.). This solicitation is focused on efforts to prevent marine debris from entering the environment through education and outreach. It is not intended for large-scale debris removal projects, deployment of catchment basins, or scientific research."
