Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Can we fax or mail the application?

  2. Can we use another program other than Microsoft Word?
    You may save your file to a rich text format (rtf) and we will accept it. You may use any program you like as long as it is saved in a Word format (or rtf).

  3. Can we send you a PDF file?

  4. Do you have the most recent version of Microsoft Word?

  5. Do you want supporting documentation such as references, letters of support, or resumes?

  6. Who will evaluate the proposals?
    A team of at least five people will review the proposals. The GOMA education staff attempt to choose reviewers with little to no connection to programs requesting funding but familiar with environmental education.

  7. What sort of reporting will be required?
    Reporting will be twice a fiscal year.  The 2011 cycle will require all projects to be complete by the end of the year.

  8. Does this grant require match?

  9. Is there a project list to review?
    Yes.  Click on the 2009 or 2010 Grant Recipient link and you will see a list of awardees and the title of their programs. 

  10. I'm confused, how many priority issues are there?
    Technically, there are six priority issues.  They are Quality for Healthy Beaches and Shellfish Beds; Wetland and Coastal Conservation and Restoration; Ecosystem Integration and Assessment; Reducing Nutrient Inputs to Coastal Ecosystems; Coastal Community Resilienc; and Environmental Education.  We didn't list
    environmental education because that is what these projects will be doing - environmental education related to one of the other issues.
