The Casco Bay Estuary Partnership will consider proposals between $500 and $5,000.

CBEP encourages new partnerships and innovative projects that engage people and communities with Casco Bay and its watershed. Successful proposals will focus on one or more of the themes from the Casco Bay Plan, such as marine education, community science, storytelling and art, public education, and other activities that are addressing issues related to coastal water quality, habitat, and climate change.

Proposals are welcome from educators, land trusts, non-profit organizations, and municipalities, especially in partnership with civic groups, municipal committees, churches, clubs, school groups and neighborhood associations.
