FY 2016 NOAA Preserve America Initiative Internal Funding Program - Funded Projects

The NOAA Preserve America Initiative Internal Funding Program (PAIIF) is pleased to announce the 2016 PAIIF recipients. The projects represent current and emerging issues that face the nation and our agency: sustainable communities and economies; climate change and adaptation; community and cultural engagement, and historical ecology.
