Dear Corallisters,

After getting several calls asking about the Coral Reef Ecosystem Study
(CRES) RFP announced a two weeks ago, I am writing to clarify that the
CRES funding opportunity is separate from the NOAA Coral Reef
Conservation Program.   The Coral Reef Conservation Program (part of the
Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000) authorizes NOAA to make grants of
financial assistance for coral reef conservation activities.  That FRN,
with the 2002 implementation guidelines, has not yet been published.

The CRES RFP is being solicited by the CSCOR Coastal Ocean Program and
is a competitive grant program supporting coral reef ecosystem studies
addressing causes of regional declines in coral abundance and
degradation of coral ecosystems.  The complete FY 2002 Federal Register
Notice for the Coral Reef Ecosystems Studies announcement of opportunity
can be viewed at

Please call if you have questions.
