Research & Program Development Projects

Maine Sea Grant supports scientific research that addresses issues of importance to Maine's coastal communities. Proposals are requested through a biennial research competition (next RFP is in 2019). We also provide project development funds for seed or pilot projects throughout the year. See the Funding page for more information.
