The Tampa Bay Environmental Restoration Fund (TBERF) is a strategic partnership between the Tampa Bay Estuary Program and Restore America’s Estuaries. TBERF seeks applications for cost-effective projects that will protect, restore, or enhance the natural resources of Tampa Bay and its contributing watershed. This includes projects that address on-the-ground habitat restoration; water quality improvement; applied research and monitoring; and community-based social marketing campaigns. Proposals that benefit historically underserved and overburdened communities are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to proposals that are aligned with conservation objectives and priorities described below. Examples of previously-funded projects can be reviewed here.

Join the Tampa Bay Estuary Program and Restore America's Estuaries for a webinar to learn about this year's funding priorities and get tips on how to craft a competitive proposal. The deadline to apply is March 15th, 2023.
