This draft Plan was developed by NOAA scientists from all line offices in collaboration with FWS.  The Plan describes the priorities and science needed to increase understanding of the Gulf ecosystem and support its long-term sustainability. This Program is “Bucket 4” under the RESTORE Act and will receive 2.5% of designated Clean Water Act funds and 25% of the Trust Fund interest. Further information about the Program and a link to the Plan can be found at http://restoreactscienceprogram.noaa.gov/.
