Community groups, fishing-related organizations and others can once again access funding to support ocean and shoreline cleanup projects throughout Nova Scotia.
The Marine Debris Cleanup Program covers up to 75 percent of eligible costs for shoreline projects and up to 50 percent for ocean-based ones, to a maximum $5,000 per project.
The program is open to organizations in the seafood harvesting, processing, buying, or aquaculture industries, as well as economic development organizations, community associations, and environmental groups. Applicants must be listed with the Registry of Joint Stocks to be eligible.
Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2023, or until all available funding has been awarded.
