Goal 3: Funding and Support

The following strategies describe how the MCPI will achieve Goal 3 - Strong support and increased funding for coastal land conservation efforts.

Implementation Strategy

3.1 Develop communication plan and materials for coastal decision-makers in government, business, and other organizations that identifies important messages and describes relevant conservation tools.

3.2 Encourage dialogue among land conservation organizations and groups focused on other issues about the connections between coastal land conservation and the important work of other groups.

3.3 Develop a comprehensive and broad-based fundraising plan to dramatically increase the financial support provided by local, regional, and national funders for protection projects, land trust operational support, stewardship endowments, and easement defense.

3.4 Develop and manage a table summarizing funding sources to make available to Maine coast land trusts.

3.5 Engage Coalition participation in advocating to secure federal, state, and local funding for coastal land conservation.
