On April 19th 2022 the Connecticut Port Authority (CPA) issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for project funding under the Small Harbor Improvement Projects Program (SHIPP), a competitive grant program managed by the CPA.  Under SHIPP, Connecticut municipalities in or adjacent to waters of the state, may apply for matching funds to conduct a project that improves the infrastructure or management of their local waterway.

The actual selection of grant recipients will take place in late-July after the CPA Projects Committee rates and selects the applications based on developed criteria and presents them to the CPA Board of Directors for final approval.

A SHIPP Grant may be used on a wide range of improvements including: marina repair, dredging, boat ramp facilities improvement, breakwaters, harbor management plans and feasibility studies.

The application submission deadline is 4pm ET on Friday, July 1, 2022.
