The 2012 Coastal Management Program Request for Proposals and associated Grant Application and Project Budget Forms are now available!
The request for proposals (RFP) is for Coastal Zone Management (CZM) grant funds for Fiscal Year 2012 projects that further the objectives of the Michigan Coastal Management Program (MCMP). Since 1978, the MCMP has provided financial assistance to eligible applicants to plan community land use and manage growth; protect, manage and restore coastal habitats; restore historic maritime structures; revitalize urban waterfronts; and increase recreational opportunities along Michigan’s Great Lakes coast. Grants are offered on a competitive basis to eligible applicants (coastal communities). Grant funds are passed-through by the MCMP and are made available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) of 1972.
The application must be submitted in two forms: 1) A hard copy of all applicable items in the Application Checklist (pages 6 – 7) must be mailed or delivered to the address below. 2) Items 2 – 6 of the Application Checklist must also be submitted in electronic form (MS Word or text file). The electronic form must be submitted as a data disk (CD or DVD) with the hard copy application or e-mailed.
