Living Shorelines

Due to funding limitations, we will not be running our Living Shorelines grant program this year as a standalone program. We hope to run the program again in the future. If your project meets the criteria, you can apply for living shorelines projects under our Outreach & Restoration Grant Program (deadline in December) or our Mini Grant Program (rolling deadline).

What this funds: 

This grant initiative is designed to reverse the trend of shoreline hardening by encouraging the creation of living shoreline restoration projects and by enhancing public awareness about the benefits of living shorelines.

Who can apply: Non-profit organizations, community associations, faith-based organizations and more. See RFP for full list of organizations.
How much can be awarded: $100,000 for projects not based on or identified in a watershed plan.
Is match required? Match requirements differ based on nature of organization. Read full RFP for more information.
Deadline: The deadline was Friday, July 11, 2014 at 5:00 pm.
