We are pleased to announce that the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (WCMP) is soliciting proposals to enhance, preserve, protect and restore resources within the state's coastal zone - all counties adjacent to Lakes Superior and Michigan, with their nearly 1000 miles of shoreline.

WCMP Grants are available for coastal land acquisition, coastal wetland protection and habitat restoration, nonpoint source pollution control, coastal resource and community planning, Great Lakes education, public access and historic preservation.  Applications are due November 3, 2008.

Applicants are encouraged to contact WCMP staff early to discuss ideas for project proposals and application requirements.  When developing proposals, please pay close attention to the following items:

* Application materials and the Request for Proposals are available on the WCMP website (http://coastal.wisconsin.gov).

* There is a cost-share requirement for all projects requiring non-federal matching funds.  Matching funds may be in the form of in-kind contributions.

* For acquisition, habitat restoration and construction projects, be sure to include copies of all required permits or permit applications and title documentation with the application materials.  For all projects, be sure to include copies of required documentation and letters of support.

We have scheduled three informational workshops to discuss the grant application process and funding priorities.  We look forward to seeing you at one of these workshops.  If you have questions, please call the WCMP at (608) 267-7982.  The meeting dates and locations are as follows:
