Description: Through a competitive application process matching funds are available to assist commercial fisheries businesses, co-ops, municipalities and other interested parties in securing strategically significant working waterfront properties. Funds can be used to purchase a property, or for the purchase of access easements, rights of way, or development rights to preserve walk-in or small boat access properties entirely dedicated to commercial fisheries uses. Mixed use properties can also be considered as long as there is commercial fishing access associated with the property.
