The New Hampshire Coastal Program at the Department of Environmental Services is currently accepting proposals for the Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program FFY2011 funding cycle. CELCP, a tremendously competitive national program, aims to protect coastal lands with significant ecological value. Qualifying land protection projects in New Hampshire must be located within the 42 coastal watershed towns and provide a one to one match. In addition, lands designated as priorities for protection in New Hampshire are identified in N.H.’s CELCP Plan.
The CELCP RFP is now posted on the Coastal Program website.
