Small Harbor Improvement Projects Program (SHIPP) Round 3 (2022)

On April 19th 2022 the Connecticut Port Authority (CPA) issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for the third round of SHIPP grant funding. Applications were accepted through July 8th.

Eleven applications were received and ten met the qualification requirements of the program (one application submitted was for infrastructure not owned by the public sector and, thus, was deemed not qualified). Eight of the applications were from entities that had received prior SHIPP funding. Ultimately, ten projects in seven municipalities statewide were selected for a total of $5.9 million in grant funds.
