Grant Writer Request #02042020B

Primary Purpose:
We are seeking grant funds to assist us with our goal of improving water quality in coastal areas around the country.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
How it works:
Reclaimed oyster shells are put back into the water near existing live oyster reefs. When the live oysters spawn their larvae “spat” attach to the existing shells and form new reefs. Without old shells to attach to, the larvae float out to sea and miss the opportunity to form new habitat.
How We Do It:
We place new reefs in protected coastal areas. We work with other non-profits and government agencies to restore oyster beds throughout the coastal United States.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 15 hours per week for 1 weeks.   For a total of 15 hours.

Provide your hourly rate for writing curriculum for: 4 hours per week for 4 weeks.   For a total of 16 hours.
