The NPS Program uses the LOI portal as a screening tool. Usually organizations are encouraged to submit their proposal ideas following an annoucement of grant opportunity. However, the NPS Program will also accept watershed proposal ideas between October and March. Currently the deadline for 319 project funding is May 1st; your organization must be ready to submit a full proposal by that date.
If you wish to submit photos, designs, spreadsheets or other supporting documents with the LOI, send them in a separate Email to the NPS Coordinator. Be sure to reference your proposal's title. Do not use the LOI portal for submissions of fully developed proposals. Your document(s) must be sent to Coordinator. We stongly encourach your organization to work with your local Basin Coordinator while developing your proposal.
