Coastal Zone Land Acquisition Grant Requests Now Being Accepted
The Department of Environmental Protection announced it is now accepting grant proposals for land acquisition of ecologically valuable lands in the coastal zone areas of Pennsylvania. Proposals are due March 2.
The solicitation is being made under the NOAA Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program for 2010 funding.
Grant applications may be made for the purchase of land acquisitions or interests; these may be in fee-simple title or as conservation easements. A major condition of the CELCP Program is that the title or easement must be held by a governmental/public entity. Grant awards must be matched dollar-for-dollar (may include in-kind match but not other Federal funds) and are capped at $3 million each (Federal share).
Land trusts may hold subeasements for management and stewardship on CELCP-funded properties and may assist in the development of proposals, but they may not hold title to any property acquired with CELCP funds.
More detailed information will be posted on DEP's Coastal Zone Management webpage.
