The recent agreement between the Natural Resource Trustees and BP to make available $1 Billion for implementation of restoration projects presents an additional opportunity for engaging the public in the restoration process. The Trustees will continue to make available our Suggest Restoration Project page at: http://www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov/restoration/give-us-your-ideas/suggest-a-restoration-project/ for the purpose of submitting specific proposals for consideration. Project ideas previously submitted to the co-trustees will also be considered. All projects approved by the Trustees will be included in a Restoration Plan that will be subject to public review and comment.
