Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson expects to award approximately $1.8 million for §306/306A coastal projects funding Grant Cycle #20. The pre-proposal deadline is June 18, 2014 and the final application deadline is September 24, 2014, with a proposed project start date of October 2015. Submission of the pre-proposal is only required if you would like written comments on your pre-proposal.
The local match requirement remains at 40 percent of total project cost for this cycle. Match may be in the form of a "cash" match or an "in-kind" match or a combination of both. (Federal funds, received directly or passed-through by a state agency, cannot be used as match.)
For on-the-ground habitat protection, restoration, and land acquisition projects, Commissioner Patterson will consider funding individual large-scale project up to $400,000. For other types of eligible §306/306A projects, the Commissioner will fund individual small-scale projects up to $100,000. The commissioner will accept applications for both construction and non-construction projects that address the funding categories.
The requirements to receive federal grant funds will be outlined in the CMP Cycle #20 Grant Guidance and Application document available April, 2014.
