GOMA’s Gulf Star Program is a unique public-private partnership that leverages contributions from agencies, businesses, and non-profits without requiring match funds from grant recipients. The new projects for 2021 focus on supporting GOMA Team actions such as coastal resilience, underrepresented and underserved communities, citizen science water and marine debris monitoring, living shorelines, wildlife conservation, and regional data sharing. In total, nearly 50 projects have been funded through the Gulf Star Program since 2016.
The shared impacts from these Gulf Star projects are made possible by the following Gulf Star partners: BHP, Shell, Freeport McMoRan, Hess, Chevron, Clean Gulf Associates, Equinor, Oxy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the five Gulf states.
