Application Overview

The Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) is seeking applications for the Maine Infrastructure Adaptation Fund (MIAF) to provide one-time funding to municipal, tribal, and infrastructure districts to adapt their critical infrastructure to reduce vulnerability to climate change. All projects must demonstrate increased resilience to future storm and flooding impacts. MIAF is looking to provide assistance to a broad geographical representation of the areas across the state that have been subject to storm damage. Eligible project sponsors are local and tribal governments, municipal conservation commissions, soil and water conservation districts, and private nonprofit organizations. Eligible projects include scoping and design, and/or construction of specific public infrastructure, including storm water systems, water systems upgrades, and other interventions that support public infrastructure repair and reducing or eliminating climate impacts.

The Maine Infrastructure Adaptation Fund provides grants to support 1) scoping and design and/or 2) implementation and construction (following completed design). Applicants may request up to $75,000 to support scoping and design, or up to $4,000,000 to support match for construction or for direct construction costs. Applicants are required to provide at least 5% local match of total project cost.
