Grant Writing Support Available for Resilience-Focused Projects
Grant Writing Support Available for NY and CT Resilience-Focused Projects
With funding through the Long Island Sound Study (LISS), New York Sea Grant (NYSG) and Connecticut Sea Grant (CTSG) are offering funding opportunities to municipalities and community organizations to assist with preparing grants for resilience projects along Long Island Sound’s shorelines. The awards will support environmental projects such as shoreline planning, green infrastructure, and other erosion mitigation efforts.
The intent of the Long Island Sound Resilience Grant Writing Assistance Program is to reduce staffing and capacity barriers that municipalities and community organizations may face when applying for competitive funding opportunities, help communities develop successful sustainable and resilience focused project grant applications, and for municipalities and community organizations to develop capacity for navigating the funding landscape.
Funding is to be awarded in a range of $5,000- $9,950 per application directly to the applicant’s selected grant writing support contractor on a cost reimbursable basis. Match will not be required.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all available funding is allocated, which may be no later than September 30, 2023.
