The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs is accepting proposals through April 24 for Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Program Action Grants for fiscal 2025.

To be eligible, projects must use climate data and projections to implement priority climate adaptation actions. Projects using nature-based solutions and community engagement efforts, as well as those that help to advance equity in the community, are preferred.

For the fiscal 2025 round of action grants, the required match has been reduced from 25% to just 10% of the total project cost. MVP-eligible tribes are no longer required to provide a match for the fiscal 2025 round.

Applicants may request up to $3 million in funding for projects in one municipality, while regional proposals may request up to $5 million.

The MVP program has received 196 expressions of interest — the most ever — for the upcoming round. The program expects to have approximately $37 million in funding available.

Additional information is available on the MVP Program website. Information about the request for responses can also be found on COMMBUYS.

Proposals must be submitted by 2 p.m. on April 24. Awards are expected to be announced in August, with projects starting as soon as September and ending by June 30, 2025, or June 30, 2026.
