Culvert Funding Alert: grant application guide video and Jan 4th workshop

Updated: Jan 9


Municipal Stream Crossing Program Applications due January 19, 2024



Midcoast Council of Governments (MCOG), Maine Audubon, and the Nature Conservancy have created an informational video to assist municipalities with the grant application process for Maine Department of Transportation's (MaineDOT) Municipal Stream Crossing Program. This video begins with an overview of the program and types of projects that are a good fit, followed by a step-by-step walkthrough of the application and requirements, and ends with some anticipated questions and answers. This video is intended to compliment the information available on MaineDOT's website:

January 4, 2024 6pm-8pm

Zoom and In Person options:

Searsmont Community Building (lower level) 37 Main St N South, Searsmont


This workshop, held in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and Maine Audubon, will provide information to help you apply for funding for culvert replacements through MaineDOT's Municipal Stream Crossing Program. Given the tight turnaround, we have created an informational video to walk you through the application. Remember, applications are due January 19, 2024, so prior to attending this workshop, we recommend:

1. Taking a look at our instructional video, which covers the application form and material,

2. Making a first attempt at filling out the application form.

Please note, you do not need to have a design or preliminary engineering in order to apply. We will leave plenty of time for questions. This will be a hybrid workshop, meaning you can either in person or on Zoom.
