(a) Financial assistance will be awarded in the form of a grant based on the following funding allocation.

1. No match requirement. Subject to available funds, certain projects may be eligible to receive a no-match grant.
i. Such projects will demonstrate broad-based applicability and industry at-large benefits such as, but not limited to, projects related to boating safety, education, and the environment.

ii. Applicants seeking no-match funding must make a specific request and provide supporting information in the grant proposal.

2. Match requirement. All other grants will be subject to a match requirement. Applicants must demonstrate the following funding match:
i. A minimum 10 percent hard match for project costs.

(b) Projects that may be eligible for other Federal, State, or local specific grant programs ("other grant programs") are expected to first apply for funds from such grant programs (for example, The Clean Vessel Act Program, NJ Sea Grant Omnibus Funding Program for Scientific Research, Green Acres, etc.). The Office may accept applications for such projects that have not yet applied for other grant programs, based upon justification provided by the applicant with the EOI application.

(c) A project may receive funds for a period not to exceed three years from the date of execution of a memorandum of agreement (MOA). If a project seeks funding beyond three years, the applicant shall request a funding extension in writing prior to the expiration of the three years, and shall include a justification for the request. Circumstances to be considered in granting an extension shall include, but not be limited to: unanticipated additional work directly associated with the project and inability to accomplish the project within the specified time frame due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the applicant's control. The Office of Maritime Resources, at its sole discretion, will determine whether to extend funding beyond three years.
