  PART A--TEXT OF THE AMENDMENT IN THE NATURE OF A SUBSTITUTE TO H.R. 
                        3644 TO BE MADE IN ORDER

  Strike all after the enacting clause and insert the 
following:

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

  This Act may be cited as the ``Ocean, Coastal, and Watershed 
Education Act''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

  (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
          (1) The United States faces major challenges, such as 
        mitigating and adapting to the impacts of climate 
        change, stewarding critical coastal and marine 
        resources including fish and wildlife habitat while 
        sustaining the commercial and recreational activities 
        that depend on these resources, and improving 
        resilience to natural disasters, that collectively 
        threaten human health, sustainable economic 
        development, environmental quality, and national 
        security.
          (2) Communities in coastal watersheds are 
        particularly vulnerable to these increasingly urgent, 
        interconnected, and complex challenges and need support 
        for teacher professional development and experiential 
        learning among students of all ages.
          (3) These challenges can be met with the help of 
        comprehensive programs specifically targeted to engage 
        coastal watershed communities, schoolchildren, and the 
        general public to develop engaged and environmentally 
        literate citizens who are better able to understand 
        complex environmental issues, assess risk, evaluate 
        proposed plans, and understand how individual decisions 
        affect the environment at local, regional, national, 
        and global scales.
          (4) The intrinsic social and conservation values of 
        wildlife-dependent and other outdoor recreation can 
        play an important role in outdoor educational programs 
        that address the myriad of coastal and ocean concerns, 
        as well as instill a sustainable conservation ethic 
        that will enable them to face those challenges to the 
        betterment of both the environment and coastal 
        communities.
          (5) The economic importance of coastal areas and 
        resources to the overall economy of the United States 
        is significant. According to the U.S. Commission on 
        Ocean Policy, coastal and ocean-related activities 
        support millions of American jobs and generate more 
        than $1 trillion, or one tenth of the Nation's annual 
        gross domestic product. Sustainable use of the Nation's 
        natural resources can provide additional economic 
        opportunities to the United States economy.
  (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this Act is to advance 
environmental literacy, develop public awareness and 
appreciation of the economic, social, recreational, and 
environmental benefits of coastal watersheds, and emphasize 
stewardship and sustainable economic development of critical 
coastal and marine resources, including an understanding of how 
climate change is impacting those resources, through the 
establishment of--
          (1) an Environmental Literacy Grant Program; and
          (2) regional programs under the B-WET Program.

                          (iii) build capacity within bay-

                          (iv) build bay-watershed education

        other form of in-kind contribution.
          (3) Other priority.--The regional program managers 
        shall give priority consideration to a project that 
        will be conducted by or benefit any under-served 
        community, any community that has an inability to draw 
        on other sources of funding because of the small 
        population or low income of the community, or any other
