Long Island Sound Grant Writing Assistance Program

Grant Writing Support Available to Reduce Barriers for Financing Sustainable and Resilience-Focused Projects

The Long Island Sound Sustainable and Resilient Communities initiative, led by the New York Sea Grant and Connecticut Sea Grant programs, are offering an opportunity for municipalities and community organizations to get help applying for sustainable and resilience-focused grants. The SRC is providing funding support to municipalities and community organizations to hire specialists in grant preparation and writing to assist with the development of grant applications for sustainable and resilience-focused projects. The projects must be in communities within or partially within the Long Island Sound Coastal boundary. See the Sustainable and Resilient Communities webpage for the eligible areas within Westchester, Nassau, and Suffolk counties, and western and eastern Connecticut.

The intent of the Long Island Sound Resilience Grant Writing Assistance Program is to reduce staffing and capacity barriers that municipalities and community organizations may face when applying for competitive funding opportunities, help communities develop successful sustainable and resilience focused project grant applications, and for municipalities and community organizations to develop capacity for navigating the funding landscape.

Funding is in the range of $5,000- $9,950 per application directly to the applicant’s selected grant writing support contractor on a cost reimbursable basis. Match will not be required.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all available funding is allocated. The funding is available through the Long Island Sound Study.
