Project Proposals are generally submitted by permit-holders, municipalities, non-governmental organizations, private companies, research institutions or state and local agencies that are in a position to carry out the project they are proposing.
Project Concepts are submitted by BBRSDA members (S03T permit-holders). They are ideas for projects that the board might consider funding. Project Concepts allow the board to gather a broad range of ideas from members who may not themselves be in a position to carry them forward.
This year, the deadline for submissions is December 16th.
