Open Requests for Proposals
Letter of Intent
CCP provides a number of technical and financial assistance programs to help coastal and Bay communities conduct sound coastal management and nutrient reduction initiatives.
If you would like to be considered for funding, but do not think your project matches up with one of our open RFPs, we invite you to create a profile in CCP Grants Online and indicate that you would like to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). The LOI application is similar our other grant applications and you should follow the steps for submitting the LOI through to completion. While funding is not guaranteed, your LOI will help CCP staff try to match you with an appropriate funding source or recommend other resources that may be available.
Application Deadline: None. LOIs accepted on a rolling basis.
CoastSmart Communities Initiative
The CoastSmart Communities Initiative provides financial and technical assistance to local governments to promote the incorporation of natural resource and/or coastal management issues into local planning and permitting activities (a program change). Preference is given to projects that focus specifically on reducing community vulnerability to the effects of sea level rise through the modification of ordinances, codes, plans and programs. As part of CZMA Section 309, no match is required. For more information e-mail Jeff Allenby or call 410-260-8743
Watershed Assistance Grant Program
The Chesapeake Bay Trust and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources welcome requests for technical planning and design assistance associated with protection and restoration programs and projects that lead to improved water quality in the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay watershed and the Maryland Coastal Bays. The funding partners invite local governments and non-profit organizations to submit requests for this assistance. The purpose of this assistance is to help grantees accomplish the earliest phases of restoration projects. The deadline for proposals is March 9, 2012, 5:00pm.
