WRA Directory


Welcome to the Maryland Watershed Restoration Assistance Directory. This tool offers one-stop shopping for anyone interested in finding funds or technical assistance to implement projects that restore Maryland's streams, rivers, bays, and watersheds.

Included are programs offered by a wide range of entities, including federal, state, and local governments, nonprofit organizations, and private foundations. Entries are in alphabetical order by topic. Each one is marked with symbols that indicate whether the assistance is funding ($), technical (T), or both. Each listing includes a description, due date, program web page link, and phone and email contacts.

This directory was created and launched by Maryland Sea Grant’s watershed restoration specialists in 2012, with help from intern Virginia Vassolotti and in cooperation with many of the organizations displayed in the directory. If you have an idea for a project but are not sure where to start, contact a specialist. Find the agent in your region here: https://www.mdsg.umd.edu/extension-directory
