Coastal Habitat Resilience and Community Adaptation in Downeast Maine

Recipient: Maine Department of Marine Resources

Federal Funding: $1,654,680

Summary: This project will apply innovative, science-based approaches to inform the planning and design of infrastructure projects. The project will strengthen partnerships through a collaborative, locally-led process to gather new scientific information and work with communities to derive solutions to flooding that also benefit key habitats to alewifes and other sea run fish, and will result in increased local and regional capacity to manage and implement similar projects in Downeast Maine.
