The Maine Department of Environmental Protection is administering $5 million in a single round of grant funding to assist municipalities with stream crossing upgrades and replacements. These monies fund competitive grants that match local funding for the upgrade of municipal culverts at stream crossings, which to date has resulted in financial assistance to over 100 projects statewide. The projects replace culverts that are failing and at risk of complete washouts, improve fish spawning habitat, eliminate undersized and other impassable culverts and reduce erosion impacts to streams, brooks and lakes. The grant RFP application is available starting Sept. 1, with proposals due by Nov. 16.
