Coastal Management Program 2025 Grant Funding Opportunity

The Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) is pleased to announce the Michigan Coastal Management Program’s (MCMP) 2025 Grant Funding Opportunity (GFO).  The MCMP provides grant funds to assist in the development of vibrant and resilient coastal communities through the protection and restoration of our sensitive coastal resources and biologically diverse ecosystems.  The MCMP is seeking projects that protect community character and revitalize ports and harbors; plan for growth and change in our coastal communities to strengthen economies and minimize risk from coastal hazards; protect and restore healthy coastal ecosystems for public use and enjoyment; devise solutions for the nature-based solutions to slow the flow of stormwater; and create and enhance public access.  The MCMP anticipates $1,000,000.00 to be available in grant funds.  These grant funds are made possible through the partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972.
