Short Term Action Request Grants (STAR)

Each year the Coastal Council allocates a limited amount of funds to serve short term, more immediate requests for grant dollars from the coastal community. STAR projects should be short in duration and small in scope.

Two categories are eligible:

  • Coastal Outreach & Education
  • Coastal Natural Resources Enhancement, Protection, and Management

STAR grants are only available for projects that will be finished within 6 months; no extensions are allowed. Requests cannot exceed $7,500, and projects must be matched at least 50/50 or 1:1. STAR grant funds are distributed on a reimbursement basis.

 

STAR funds are depleted as of 06/01/2014. We are not accepting accepting applications until further notice.
