The Maine Coastal Program is currently seeking applications for a new round of coastal grants for FY2021. Shore and Harbor Planning Grants support municipal and regional projects in Maine’s Coastal Zone. Proposals are due on Monday, June 22, 2020, at 5 pm.
Shore and Harbor Planning Grants promote sound waterfront planning and harbor management, balanced development of shore and harbor areas, planning for waterfront infrastructure improvements, planning for climate resiliency, and access to the shore. Funds may be used for the development of plans for waterfront facilities and amenities, harbor and mooring plans, waterfront vulnerability assessments and resiliency plans, development of regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to waterfront conservation and improvement, development of planning studies for public and working access, development of plans and designs for harbor improvements, and development of management plans for municipal waterfront facilities.
