Eastern Maine Conservation Initiative awards grants of $1,000 to $3,000 annually for academic or professional studies or endeavors in support of environmental sciences, wildlife conservation, cultural geography or historical research related to Eastern Maine. It has also funded projects for local historical societies.
Generally, in reviewing grant proposals, EMCI looks for a definition of the problem, a statement of a solution that would address the problem, the actions needed to achieve the solution, and how the applicant might work with other entities focused on the same area of interest. Budgetary details and methodology specifics would need to be spelled out. A report is expected.
