Synopsis The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), invites full proposals to develop products to be integrated into Coastal Watershed Resilience Assessments for seven watersheds around the United States. Products to be developed under this RFP include:

  • A geospatial fish and wildlife habitat assessment using available local and regional datasets that, with assistance from NFWF and a technical committee, will be integrated with community risk data and national-level fish and wildlife habitat data being compiled through a concurrent effort to depict resilience need, and;
  • Identification of potential nature-based projects within each watershed to address the resilience need by protecting communities from severe storms and floods, while enhancing fish and wildlife through restoration or improvement of their associated habitats.

The seven watersheds are:

  • Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island
  • Delaware Bay, New Jersey and Delaware
  • Merrymeeting Bay, Maine
  • Charlston Harbor, South Carolina
  • Savannah River, Georgia and South Carolina
  • St. John’s River, Floridas
  • San Francisco Bay, California
