Baker-Polito Administration: $5 Million for 13 Communities

The Baker-Polito Administration’s Seaport Economic Council (SEC) has announced a total of $5 million in awards for 13 coastal communities.

These grant awards will advance collaborative initiatives to improve public infrastructure and promote maritime economic development in a wide array of coastal cities and towns.

“The Blue Economy is an integral component of Massachusetts’s long-term economic growth, in sectors as diverse as robotics and commercial fishing,” said Governor Charlie Baker.

“These investments will help modernize and repair vital infrastructure in New Bedford, encourage research and development in Falmouth, and generate maritime economic growth from Gloucester to Tisbury.” 

The Seaport Economic Council advances the Baker-Polito Administration’s support for communities and residents across the state by leveraging unique economic assets to drive sustainable regional growth.

The council’s capital grant program supports working waterfronts, local tourism, coastal resiliency and maritime innovation, from the North Shore to Cape Cod and the South Coast.
