ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) A community foundation in Maine is providing more than $200,000 in grants to a marine science institution, a gay advocacy group and others.

The Maine Community Foundation says it’s giving the grants to 24 nonprofits in the state.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland will receive a grant for a project it is working on about sea level rise.

The foundation says OUT Maine in Rockland will receive a grant to develop trainings “to educate decision makers on how to create safety for LGBTQ+ youth.”

The community foundation says grant recipients are able to use grants at their own discretion.
