September 10, 2010

The Congressional Black Caucus, under the leadership of the CBC Energy & Environment Taskforce, has issued a Request for Proposals (see below) for recommendations on how BP, federal agencies and local networks can move towards long term recovery and restoration of the Gulf Coast Region.

Proposals must be submitted to the Congressional Black Caucus office by close of business Friday, September 10, 2010 at congressionalblackcaucus@mail.house.gov.

Request for Proposals: BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill – Recommendations for Long-Term Gulf Coast Recovery & Restoration

Summary

No recent incident has demonstrated more plainly the importance of a renewed focus on environmental justice and energy policy than the tragic April 20th explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. As we recognize the 5th Anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we are reminded that the aftermath clearly demonstrated we must be proactive to ensure that African Americans and other communities of color are not disproportionately affected by tragedies of this scale.

The Congressional Black Caucus, under the leadership of the CBC Energy & Environment Taskforce, therefore issues this Request for Proposals from constituents, activists, students, business and political leaders in the Gulf Coast Region and nationwide for recommendations on how BP, federal agencies and local networks can move towards long term recovery and restoration of the Gulf Coast Region.

The CBC will utilize the recommendations as Congress addresses legislative vehicles and exercises oversight duties. The CBC will also package and share proposals with the British Petroleum Company (BP), agencies and organizations responsible for long-term recovery and restoration efforts.  Some proposals will be selected for verbal presentation at the CBC Green Roundtable session held during the CBC Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference on Thursday, September 16, 2010 in Washington, D.C.

Submission Instructions

Proposals must be submitted to the Congressional Black Caucus office by close of business Friday, September 10, 2010 at congressionalblackcaucus@mail.house.gov. Each submission must include the following:
