Approximately $600,000 of funding is available to local entities for projects meeting the program criteria for the 2016 grant cycle. Federal appropriations for the 2016 grant cycle are not yet set; as such, all projects that receive state approval will be considered conditionally approved. If Federal Appropriations for 2016 are less than for 2015, projects may receive a prorated award amount reflecting the difference in funding shortfall. The DNR Lake Michigan Coastal Program administers the Indiana Coastal Grants Program. The Indiana Coastal Grants Program is comprised of two components: (1) Large Scale Grant Program; and (2) Small Scale Grant Program.If you think your agency or organization may be interested in applying, please read the Coastal Grant Pre-Proposal Guidance found here: http://www.in.gov/dnr/lakemich/files/lm-Coastal_Grant_Pre-Proposal_Guidance.pdf.
