3.  GRANT OPPORUNITY: Five Star Restoration Grant Program--Deadline: March 1, 2002.  The National Association of Counties, the Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Wildlife Habitat Council, in cooperation with U.S. EPA and NOAA, are soliciting applications for the Five Star Restoration Challenge Grant Program. The Five Star Program provides modest financial assistance for "on-the-ground" community-based wetland, riparian and coastal habitat restoration projects.  Ideally, the project should involve diverse partnerships of five Organizations or more that contribute funding, land, technical assistance, workforce support, and/or other in-kind services (including schools or youth groups; corporations, local businesses, conservation organizations or local citizen groups, state or federal resource agencies; and foundations or other funders). Preference will be given to projects that 1) are part of a larger watershed or community stewardship effort, 2) include specific provisions for long-term management and protection, and 3) demonstrate the value of innovative, collaborative approaches to restoring the nation's waters.
