Coastal Community Grant Deadline

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation Municipal Planning Assistance Program and Maine Department of Marine Resources, Maine Coastal Program are seeking applications for a new round of Coastal Community Grants for FY 2019.

Coastal Community Grants are an important element of the Municipal Planning Assistance Program’s mission to improve economic conditions by providing technical and financial assistance to Maine municipalities.

The grants are for municipal and regional projects in Maine’s Coastal Zone. Funding for these technical assistance grants comes from Maine Coastal Program’s annual grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Eligible projects must be designed to improve water quality in priority coastal watersheds, or to increase resiliency/adaptation to erosion and flooding, while preserving coastal natural resources.

Those eligible to apply include towns and unorganized territories in Maine’s coastal zone, groups of towns and unorganized territories in Maine’s coastal zone, coastal Regional Planning Commissions, and coastal Councils of Government.  The Coastal Communities grants have a maximum award of $100,000.

Coastal Communities Grant applications are due Friday, July 27, 2018 at 2 P.M.
