Request for Competitive Grant Proposals on Pause
We will be assessing the competitive Coastal Grant program and its priorities, and therefore, will temporarily pause the program. We will not be issuing a request for grant proposals for 2016-17, to allow us the time needed to review and refine the program and improve it, where possible, for our grantees and applicants. Please note, this does not affect any active grants from our program. The next competitive funding cycle will commence after this assessment is complete, with a tentative application deadline for the next round of competitive grants expected in January 2018.
With five successful funding cycles behind us, the assessment of our grant program is an important opportunity to gather feedback on the program, and analyze our strengths and weaknesses. We are excited about what lies ahead for the Coastal Management Program and, in particular, the opportunity to continue to work with our grantees to protect and enhance the environmental, economic, and social value of our coast!
