The Chesapeake Bay Trust, with support from the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), seeks nontidal wetland projects in the State of Maryland through the Maryland Nontidal Wetland Award Program.   Funds Available = $760,000.

The goal of this program is to implement cost-effective wetland projects to provide valuable wetland functions, including habitat for a wide range of species and improved water quality, flood attenuation, recharge of groundwater, and aesthetics in the State’s local watersheds and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay, Youghiogheny River, and Atlantic Coastal Bays.  We welcome requests from local governments, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, contractors, and for-profit entities.  The output of this program is to design, construct, monitor, and protect nontidal wetland sites and their associated buffers in the State of Maryland. Funded projects will be considered as In-Lieu Fee compensatory wetland mitigation sites and regulated wetland areas.

For more information on the program and how to apply, please see the attached Request for Proposals (RFP).  The RFP can also be downloaded from the Trust’s website here:
