AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is seeking applications for grants for projects to benefit the state’s coastal communities.

The agency is giving out two kinds of grants, Coastal Communities Grants and Shore and Harbor Management Grants. The communities grants top out at $100,000 while the shore and harbor grants have a maximum of $30,000.

Grants can go to municipalities, groups of towns, regional planning groups and coastal councils of governments. The money can be used for work such as restoring coastal habitat and preparing for coastal storms and erosion.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration funds the grants via the Maine Coastal Program. Money also comes from the state agriculture department.
