Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host five workshops for prospective applicants in preparation for upcoming "requests for proposals" (RFP) of 2019 Municipal Infrastructure Stream Crossing Upgrade Grants. This is an opportunity for funding to help communities with the upgrade of municipal culverts at stream crossings to improve community safety, minimize impacts to water quality, and improve habitat for fish and wildlife.

Municipal leaders who are thinking about applying for a grant, are encouraged to attend for information about stream crossing design, prioritization resources for municipalities, permitting requirements, the RFP process, and preparing proposals for the program. There will be a single round of grant applications in the fall of 2020.

Please register at least 5 days prior to the event by contacting John Maclaine, Maine DEP at john.maclaine@maine.gov or (207) 6153279. Attendees should provide contact information and which workshop location they plan to attend when registering.
