Massachusetts Dredging Program

The Massachusetts Dredging Program is the Commonwealth’s first grant program with focused funding to support saltwater dredging. This program promotes the strength and sustainability of the Commonwealth’s blue economy.

The Massachusetts Dredging Program provides construction-phase funding to coastal communities for saltwater dredging projects. Grants are competitively awarded, with a focus on shovel-ready projects that contribute to the economic significance, public safety, recreational value, and/or coastal resiliency of the Commonwealth’s coastal harbors.
