Minnesota Coastal Area Grant Available

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is accepting grant applications for projects through its Lake Superior Coastal Program.

According to DNR, about $450,000 will be available for projects to begin after September 1, 2018. Applications are due Thursday, November 30. Funding for these grants is provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office for Coastal Management.

The coastal area covers portions of Carlton, Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties and the Minnesota waters of Lake Superior. Local, state and tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, area-wide and regional planning agencies, colleges and universities, public school districts, port authorities, joint powers boards, and sanitary sewer districts are eligible to apply.

Minnesota’s coastal area is an economic driver, important natural resource and recreational draw for residents and visitors alike,” said Amber Westerbur, coastal program manager. “By focusing our efforts on protecting lives and property through hazard mitigation, we can engage our local partners in finding local solutions that fit shared needs.

Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program has dispersed more than $12 million in grants to more than 500 projects since 1999.
