The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) is getting ready to release a RFR for the Coastal Pollution Remediation Grant Program.
The Coastal Pollutant Remediation (CPR) Grant Program provides funding to municipalities to address stormwater runoff pollution from roads, highways, or parking areas and boat waste from commercial vessels. All projects must either:
- Directly address known sources of stormwater or boat-waste pollution that impact coastal water quality or resources, such as coastal habitat, bathing beaches, shellfish harvest or aquaculture, or anadromous fish habitat; or
- Focus on waters with a direct connection to the coast classified as impaired by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Integrated Waters list
The RFR is expected to be released in Spring 2017 for projects to be complete in the fiscal year that begins in July 2017. For more information on the program and to find out about upcoming information sessions please visit the program website or download the brochure.
