    2. Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grants Program: proposals due Jan. 31, 2014: Dr. Souza explained that this grant cannot be used for dredging the lake as that function is not an allowable activity under the terms and conditions of the grant. He detailed the approvable activities permitted under the grant, including the creation of living shorelines. And further explained that this program is an extremely competitive national program open to applicants in all States, and the application process is quite difficult. With no guarantees, our professionals will try to have the application submitted within the short timeframe allotted for submission.

    7. Web site update – Sam Hartung, our webmaster, advised that the new option of monitoring unique hits on the Commission’s website is working well.
