Restore America’s Estuaries is pleased to announce the availa2022 NEP Coastal Watersheds Grant. RAE will select grantees through a two-step process: 1) letters of intent (LOI); and 2) full proposals by invitation only. LOIs are due on Friday, May 27, 2022. Only projects occurring within the specified geographic eligibility areas may receive funding.  

We hosted two informational workshops for interested applicants on March 24 and 30, 2022. You can watch the recording below:

New this year, organizations may request a full or partial waiver from the non-federal match requirement. We hope this will reduce barriers to application and project implementation.


Project funding will range between $75,000 and $250,000, resulting in roughly three to ten total subawards per funding year depending on the

 breakdown of the requests.

Have some questions? Wondering if a project or idea you have is eligible for funding? Or just want to get some one-on-one time? You can schedule time with NEP CWG program director, Suzanne Simon, via this link. Each session is 30 minutes and can be via whatever works for you – phone call or virtual meeting [e.g. Zoom, Teams, etc.]. You’re also welcome to email her at ssimon@estuaries.org or visit the NEP Coastal Watersheds Grant Program website.
