2022-2026 Invitation for General Restoration.pdf (v1.29.21)

Overview 

The FY 22-26 Invitation includes General Restoration and Habitat Protection. These two focus areas are described further in the Invitation. Proposals submitted in response to this General Restoration Invitation should address one or more of these areas. Please note that natural resource damage recovery excludes reimbursement or other recovery by either State or Federal Government for oil spill prevention, response and clean-up costs, lost royalty, tax, license, or fee revenues, punitive damages, federal or state civil or criminal penalties, federal litigation costs and attorney fees (p7 of the Memorandum of Agreement and Consent Decree). 

Please note: Project proposals may be submitted under only one current Invitation (FY 22-31 or FY 22-26). A project that is submitted under both Invitations may be disqualified from consideration.

Frequently Asked Questions

As questions are received regarding the Invitation after it is issued, we will be posting and periodically updating our FY22-26 Invitation FAQ page.

Injured Resources and Services List (IRS)

In November 1994, the Council adopted an official list of resources and services injured by the Spill as part of its Restoration Plan. The IRS has been updated six times and the most recent is from November 2014.  

Annual Review and Reporting Procedures for Funded Proposals

At the January 19, 2021 Council meeting, the Trustee Council approved to shift the annual public meeting and funding process to five-year cycle. The five year cycle will maintain annual and final reporting for all projects, and also a biennial review of projects by entities including the Council’s staff, Science Panel and Public Advisory Committee. Please see Resolutions 21-02 and 21-03 for details. Current policies for annual and final reporting can be found here. These policies will be revised before the start of FY 22.
