Open Requests for Responses (RFRs)

Healthy Estuaries Grant Program - CZM’s Massachusetts Bays National Estuary Program (MassBays) is seeking proposals for the Healthy Estuaries Grant Program. For 2018, this program will provide up to $110,000 for projects that help characterize the 68 assessment areas identified in the 2017 MassBays Estuary Delineation and Assessment. MassBays is seeking projects that will: generate new data and information on trends and conditions of estuarine resources; apply new or innovative approaches to improve estuarine conditions (including restoration efforts); advance on-the-ground actions that result in the reduction of identified stressors; and provide information for decision-making and resource management. Applicants can request from $8,000 to $35,000 and a 25 percent non-federal match of the total project cost is required. To view the Request for Responses and download required forms, see the COMMBUYS website. For questions, contact Prassede Vella at Pre-proposals are due by January 11, 2018.
