Louisiana Trustees seeking restoration proposals

If you have submitted project ideas in the past to either portal, or in connection with other Louisiana restoration planning efforts, including Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan and Deepwater Horizon restoration planning efforts, you do not need to resubmit those ideas.
