Stream Crossing Upgrade Grant Program

Maine voters approved multiple bond packages that include $5 million dollars annually for municipal stream crossing upgrades. These monies fund a competitive grant program that matches local funding for the upgrade of municipal culverts at stream crossings to improve fish and wildlife habitats and increase community safety.
