The Division of Ecological Restoration seeks river and wetland restoration projects that bring significant ecological, community, and climate adaptation benefits to the Commonwealth.DER is requesting responses for cranberry bog restoration, streamflow restoration, and urban river revitalization projects.Selected Priority Projects will be eligible to receive technical assistance from DER staff, technical services from consultants, and/or grant funding throughout the life of the project.
