This funding opportunity specifically seeks to extend resources to support local interested stakeholder groups to build their capacity to participate in coral reef stewardship partnerships, as they are established. A coral reef stewardship partnership is a group established to further community-based stewardship of federal and non-federal coral reef units (refer to 16 USC 6405 for more details). This will be accomplished through direct funding to local coral reef conservation and community groups, and support to regional or national projects that will provide tools, training and skills development to the coral conservation community free of charge.
