Waterfront towns in Maryland have until June 30 to apply for a one-year grant of up to $60,000 through the department’s Working Waterfronts Program.
The program provides financial and technical support to preserve and protect existing and historic waterfront communities throughout Maryland. Ideal proposals will target waterfront planning, maritime zoning and new programs supporting maritime industries and employment.
Last year, Talbot County received a grant, as did the municipalities of Annapolis, Cambridge, Oxford, Rock Hall and St. Michaels.
The grants are made possible by a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It is administered through the state’s Department of Natural Resources.
