Maine Infrastructure Adaptation Fund

Department of Transportation

Allocation: $20,000,000

Status: Active

Climate change poses a serious risk to Maine infrastructure, with damage estimates in the billions of dollars unless action is taken. The Maine Infrastructure Adaptation Fund, administered through the Maine Department of Transportation, will provide grants to municipalities, tribal governments, and others to improve stormwater, drinking water, and wastewater infrastructure from flooding, rising sea levels, and extreme weather. These grants will help protect vital infrastructure most at risk from the effects of climate change, support natural resources, and benefit public safety and emergency management efforts.
