Upcoming Grant Rounds

NEW: Pre-RFR Support - CZM anticipates the release of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Requests for Responses (RFR) for the Coastal Resilience Grant Program and the Coastal Pollutant Remediation (CPR) Program this spring. Until the RFRs are released, CZM can discuss project ideas and eligibility for these grants with potential applicants. See the contact information at the bottom of the Coastal Resilience Grant page and the CPR Grant page to connect with CZM staff. Information is also available on those pages to sign up to receive an email announcement that the RFR is posted. Links to the RFRs will also be posted here and on both of these web pages when the grant rounds officially open.
