Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration Program and Trust Fund

Interested parties may click here the see a description (pdf document) of the projects that were funded through the Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration Program and Trust Fund. This fund was created through 2003 legislation that amended the 1996 Oil Spill Prevention Administration and Response Act (OSPAR) resulting from the 1996 North Cape Oil Spill.

Portal Demonstration Workshop

The Rhode Island Habitat Restoration Team (RIHRT) held a series of public workshops in the fall of 2003 to demonstrate the Rhode Island Habitat Restoration Portal and three restoration site selection tools. The objectives of the workshops were to demonstrate the Portal and site selection tool capabilities, engage stakeholders and the public in identifying the priorities for protecting, improving, and restoring habitats at identified sites, and establish a framework for obtaining public input on priority habitat restoration projects for future funding initiatives. Workshop participants included federal and state agencies, nonprofit groups, watershed councils, academia, private business owners, neighborhood associations, the Massachusetts Wetlands Restoration program, Senator Chafee’s office and members of the community.
