Culvert Replacement Municipal Assistance (CRMA)And Culvert Replacement Training Site Program

The Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration is seeking proposals from municipalities and other eligible applicants in Massachusetts interested in replacing undersized, perched, and/or degraded culverts or bridges located in areas of high ecological value. The purpose of this funding is to encourage applicants to replace aging culverts with better designed crossings that meet improved structural and environmental design standards and flood resiliency criteria.

Only projects that intend to meet the goals of the Massachusetts Stream Crossing Standards will be considered for funding.

For FY25, DER anticipates selecting up to three (3) additional proposals to be part of the Culvert Replacement Training Site Initiative.
