Massachusetts officials are seeking support for the ongoing restoration of the schooner Ernestina—the official ship of Massachusetts—which is currently docked in New Bedford.
The state Department of Conservation and Recreation is seeking an outside party interested in rehabilitating, reusing and maintaining the Ernestina in return for a long-term lease under the Historic Curatorship Program (HCP).
Initial responses are due by July 25 and will be followed by a request for bids.
