This year, Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE), working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, expects to award $1.75 million in competitive grants to organizations and partnerships working to restore clean water, healthy coastal ecosystems, and sustainable communities in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
Typical awards will range from $50,000 to $350,000. Projects of exceptional impact may be funded up to $500,000. Smaller grants will be considered in limited instances. As these are federal funds, a non-federal match of 33% of the grant is required. Applicants may request a full or partial waiver of match if needed; see the Request for Proposals (RFP) for more information.
