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 municipalities for saltwater dredging. Grants are competitively awarded with a focus on shovel-ready projects that contribute to the economic significance, recreational value, public safety, and/or coastal resilience of the Commonwealth’s coastal harbors.
