Bay Plate Creates Funds

The Chesapeake Bay Restoration Advisory Committee is accepting grant applications to conduct Chesapeake Bay-related education and restoration activities. The grants are funded with monies from the sale of the special Chesapeake Bay license plate “Friends of the Chesapeake”. This year $357,223 in grant monies will be awarded. That’s an increase over the $264,462 in grant funds released last year. Since 1996, over $7 million has been awarded as a result of the sale of the “Bay plate”.
