This funding will be used for operations to support the new Coral Restoration and Protection Program (CRP) and allow RCP to hire competitively and retain valuable staff. In addition, it will support expense items, such as lab supplies, field supplies, water quality monitoring supplies, and other such needs within the RCP statewide operational grants.
