AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A government agency is seeking proposals for the protection and development of the Maine coast.

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry announced Monday a new round of grants totaling $265,000.

The grants are being awarded for projects that, among other purposes, help communities deal with shoreline erosion, protect habitat and adapt to flooding. Some of the funds also support harbor and waterfront projects.

Individual grants for coastline preservation and erosion would not exceed $50,000. Those for waterfront development are capped at $20,000.
