AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The state of Maine is seeking applications for grants to help strengthen communities along the coast.

Money for the grants comes from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s Submerged Lands Program.

There are two kinds of grants. The Coastal Communities grant program is designed for projects that improve water quality, increase resiliency to erosion and flooding, and conserve habitat. The Shore and Harbor program’s goal is to promote waterfront planning and management.

The Coastal Communities grants can go up to $100,000 and the Shore and Harbor grants can go as high as $30,000. The deadline is April 28.
