Gulf of Mexico Restoration Projects Database

There are a myriad of restoration efforts underway to respond to the Deepwater Horizon disaster, including theĀ Natural Resources Damage Assessment,the NFWF Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund, and the RESTORE Act. Over the coming years, hundreds more projects will likely be funded.

This database tracks projects that have been approved under the three main restoration processes. The sortable display allows users to filter by state and funding mechanism; the searchable database allows users to filter results by state or county. Our Restoration Projects Map indicates where approved Deepwater Horizon restoration and recovery projects are taking place.

We have included all projects approved under NRDA, NFWF Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund, and the RESTORE Act. This includes planning grants under Pots 1, 2, and 3 of the RESTORE Act. Each project entry generally includes a project description, information on public participation, project funding, and a link to the project webpage. Where included, the project description is taken directly from the project webpage, and other details may be taken directly from the project webpage as well (though not necessarily in quotation marks).

In general, we include the details of the project at the time it was approved for funding. In certain circumstances, we will update an entry, such as when (1) a project is cancelled; or (2) additional funds are added to a project. Note that, where we update an entry, we have included a link to the amendment that alters the project. Please refer to the individual project websites for additional information.

If you have suggestions for projects or updates to add, please send them to gulfofmexico@eli.org.
