Long Island Sound Program

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Administered by:

US Federal Government Agency (see all agencies)
Environmental Protection Agency , Office of Water
CFDA #: 66.437

Purpose of this program:

To (1) implement the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) and (2) assist the states of Connecticut and New York, and other public or nonprofit entities in conducting research, experiments, investigations, training, demonstration, surveys or studies related to reducing pollution and improving the quality of the environment to sustain living resources in Long Island Sound. Funding Priority: EPA's funding priority is to award grants that support the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) National Estuary Program. Section 119(d) of the Clean Water Act as amended by the Long Island Sound Restoration Act of 2000, P.L. 106-457 authorizes the Administrator to award grants to eligible entities to implement the LISS Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP), with special emphasis on implementation, research and planning, enforcement, and citizen involvement and education projects. The LISS management conference, with participants from state, interstate and regional environmental agencies, local governments and other public or nonprofit private agencies, research institutions and individuals, develops programs to protect and restore Long Island Sound. The LISS program characterizes the problems in the estuary, determines relationships between pollutant loading and impacts on living resources, maintains a comprehensive plan recommending solutions to priority problems, and implements actions addressing priority problem areas.
