Grants ranging from $5,001 to $75,000 to Maryland nonprofits, agencies, and IHEs for programs and projects that aim to reduce nutrient and sediment contaminant loads to the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland Coastal Bays from any nonpoint source. Funding is intended for projects that are focused in the following categories:

1. New Techniques: Projects that seek to evaluate nutrient, sediment, and/or toxic load reduction values or efficiencies of new Best Management Practices (BMPs), or combinations of BMPs, in real-world or demonstration-scale settings. Projects seeking to reduce toxic loading can apply for funds associated with testing and demonstration of new techniques since little implementation has occurred to date.

2. New Information: Projects that seek to refine nutrient and/or sediment load reduction values or efficiencies of one or more Best Management Practices (BMPs) in order to improve targeting and cost-effectiveness of existing restoration programs.

3. New Programs: Projects that seek to create or contribute to new programs based on accepted Best Management Practices (BMPs). The purpose of such new programs should be to bring new, creative ideas to the implementation or financing of nutrient and/or sediment load reductions. The ultimate goal should be to accelerate restoration efforts in the Bay region.
