Financial Assistance Program

The National Park Service (NPS), Chesapeake Bay Office accepts project proposals from Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Trail partners for financial assistance awards. Financial assistance awards are predicated on the availability of Congressional appropriations. Public water access site development projects that advance the development of designated Gateways water trails, the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, and/or the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail are the current funding focus.

Applicants for NPS Chesapeake Bay financial assistance awards must be either a non-profit organization (qualified as such under section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code) or a state or local government. For Federal sites, only non-Federal partner organizations may apply. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NPS Chesapeake Bay staff to discuss your project ideas in advance of submitting an application.

NOTE: The application period for fiscal year 2014 projects has closed and we are not currently accepting project proposals.

Subject to appropriations, NPS Chesapeake Bay Office would anticipate soliciting project proposals again in fiscal year 2015 (FY15). A solicitation is typically issued between November and January. Interested parties will find it helpful to review the 2014 Program Guidelines (subject to update in FY15) and sample project development materials to gain some understanding of program and project requirements.
