Seaport Economic Council grants help the economic growth of coastal communities. Grants help to create jobs and build resilience to the impacts of climate change.
Seaport Economic Council grants will be awarded on a competitive basis, and will offer flexible funding to empower communities to bring forward the best ideas and projects for cultivating and stimulating the maritime economy and job growth.
Generally, five types of grants will be encouraged and prioritized with maximum awards of about $1 million. Most grants, however, are anticipated to be much smaller.
