With funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Section 320 of the Clean Water Act, MassBays provides small grants to nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and municipalities for projects that advance progress toward the goals of our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. We seek proposals that will fill in gaps in knowledge about our assessment areas, demonstrate new approaches to monitoring or protecting near-shore habitats, or lay the groundwork for future restoration.
Visit the links below for a list and detailed reports of projects funded by MassBays through its Research and Planning Grant Program (2010 - 2015) and its successor, the Healthy Estuaries Grant Program (2016 - present). The projects are also available through the interactive map at the link below.
