FFY 2013 Coastal Zone Grants
CRM receives an annual grant award from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This award provides for a portion of the funds to be used for eligible projects that address one or more of the priority areas of the CRM program. Applications are evaluated and awarded through a competitive process. The funds are distributed through sub-grant awards to state and local government agencies as well as nonprofit groups located in or having facilities in the Delaware Estuary or Lake Erie Coastal Zones.
Eligible projects are reviewed by program staff, two local Coastal Zone Advisory Committees, and the State Coastal Zone Advisory Committee and are evaluated based on criteria outlined in the Grant Application Instruction Guide.
The upcoming solicitation period for the FFY 2013 Coastal Zone grants opens on August 13, 2012 and continues until 4pm on October 15, 2012. For more information access the PA Bulletin announcement here: http://www.pabulletin.com/secure/data/vol42/42-27/1267.html.
The term of the grant agreement begins in October of 2013 and runs until March 31, 2015.
All potential grantees must submit applications electronically through our Environmental eGrants System by 4pm on October 15, 2012. The online application can be accessed at: https://www.grants.dcnr.state.pa.us
The Department of Environmental Protection will be conducting coastal zone grant solicitation workshops in both of Pennsylvania's coastal zones. The workshops will provide information and instructions on how to apply to the competitive grant program.
