How to Apply
To apply go to Grants.gov and click "Find Funding Opportunities" on the left side of the page, and do a Keyword search on "Exxon" to find the funding opportunity priorities and application.
Eligible applicants can apply to obtain $25,000 to $500,000 in individual project requests. Applicants may submit numerous proposals from the same organization. The funding duration for each project is tentatively set for three years, although in some cases monitoring such as hydrocarbon monitoring, use of new facilities, improved water quality assessments and many others, may extend beyond a three-year time frame. Work funded by this program cannot be required by law or used as mitigation and must fall within the area of Alaska affected by the spill (see map). However, improvements above and beyond what is required for compliance to regulated/mandated projects can be funded.
