Maryland’s Chesapeake & Coastal Program administers a number of financial assistance programs that distribute federal and state funds to local governments for coastal planning and resource protection. We invite you to use this site to get familiar with the grant programs, to check out announcements for open Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and to learn more about our program’s accomplishments, previously funded projects and grant recipients.
What is CCP Grants Online?
CCP Grants Online has been developed to reduce paper, streamline the application and reporting process, increase transparency and most importantly, help our partners find the resources that they need. On behalf of the State of Maryland, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Chesapeake & Coastal Program administers a portfolio of State and Federal funds to assist Maryland’s communities with planning for climate change, restoring local waterways, protecting habitats, fostering clean coastal industries, or encouraging citizens to become caring stewards.
In addition to providing grant funds to local communities, the Chesapeake & Coastal Program provides training, tools and technical assistance to ensure that coastal decision-makers have the current scientific information, technical tools and skill-building opportunities that they need to manage Chesapeake, Ocean and coastal resources. Whether responding to a specific Request for Proposal (RFP) or to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) for potential technical or financial support, please begin by creating a program profile from this page.
PLEASE NOTE: CCP Grants Online does not accept proposals for all funding programs posted on this site (e.g. Watershed Assistance Grant Program). Please thoroughly review the RFP you are interested in responding to and review the application instructions.
