2016 Maryland Working Waterfronts Grants

posted in: Chesapeake Bay News | 0

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is seeking proposals from local governments looking to invigorate their waterfront economies.

Municipalities and counties in the coastal zone are eligible to apply for these one-year grants through the department’s Working Waterfronts Program.

Now in its second year, the Working Waterfronts Program provides financial and technical support to protect existing and historic waterfront communities in Maryland.

Ideal proposals will target waterfront land planning, comprehensive plans, maritime zoning, codes and ordinances, and develop new programs.

Applicants are encouraged to address public access, maritime heritage, tourism, recreation, and conservation, while taking into account potential weather-related impacts.

Total requests may not exceed $60,000; matching funds are not required. The application deadline is June 17.
