The Nature Conservancy has launched a new Gulf restoration project that aims to create 300 jobs over 3 years along the Gulf of Mexico.  The GulfCorps project is made possible by a RESTORE Act grant administered by NOAA and will provide crews with marketable skills in the restoration economy taking shape in the Gulf.

The Nature Conservancy is working in collaboration with critical partners at The Corps Network (TCN) and the Student Conservation Association (SCA). The GulfCorps Program integrates conservation and restoration principles with workforce development through utilization of conservation corps in all five Gulf states. The GulfCorps Program Specialist (GCPS) is part of The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Gulf of Mexico Whole System Program.  The Whole Systems Program is tasked with adding capacity to TNC Chapters along the Gulf of Mexico, while also participating in multi-state and regional projects.

The GCPS works under the direction of the GulfCorps Program Director handling operations for the GulfCorps Program.  The person in this position is responsible for writing contracts and sub-award; developing conservation and restoration project scopes through collaboration with RESTORE Act Representatives, NOAA, Federal and State Agencies, non-profits and other entities; developing monitoring plans, data collection and reporting; and working with sub-awardees and maintaining quality control for the deliverables of the Program. The GulfCorps Program Specialist may lead or monitor work groups engaged in conservation and restoration activities. Funding for this position is secured by a grant through June 30, 2020.
