Coastal Pollutant Remediation (CPR) Grant Program

Find information on this Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) grant program.

The Coastal Pollutant Remediation (CPR) Grant Program was established in 1994 by the Massachusetts Legislature to help communities identify and improve water quality impaired by nonpoint source (NPS) pollution. The goal of the CPR program—which is administered by CZM—is to provide funding to Massachusetts municipalities to assess and treat stormwater pollution from impervious surfaces and to design and construct commercial boat waste pumpout facilities. From 1996-2022, CZM awarded close to $13 million in CPR grants. The CPR Grants have been merged into the Coastal Habitat and Water Quality Grants, which fund projects focusing on coastal water quality improvement and habitat restoration planning.

Other Available Funding - The Available Funding for Stormwater Projects in Massachusetts page provides a table with descriptions and links to information on federal and state grant and loan programs that fund stormwater and water quality projects in the state.
