Resource:

(NOAA OCM) National Coastal Zone Management Program

Overview:

Authorized by the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) of 1972, the Program comprehensively addresses the nation’s coastal issues through a voluntary partnership between the federal government and coastal and Great Lakes states and territories. OCM awards four types of funding to the nation’s 34 state and territory coastal zone management programs to protect, restore, and responsibly develop coastal communities and resources. Funding categories include:

  • Administrative Grants - Funds to administer state/territorial coastal zone management programs under Section 306 of the CZMA.
  • Coastal Resource Improvement Program - Under Section 306A of the CZMA, state coastal zone management programs may spend up to half of their Section 306 funds on small-scale construction or land acquisition projects that enhance public access to the coast, facilitate redevelopment of urban waterfronts, or preserve and restore coastal resources.
  • Coastal Zone Enhancement Grants - Under Section 309 of the CZMA, OCM provides zero-match Coastal Zone Enhancement Program funds to state coastal zone management programs to enhance programs in one or more areas of national significance.
  • Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program (Technical Assistance) Funds to help state coastal zone management programs implement Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Programs under Section 310 (Technical Assistance) of the CZMA.

Funding Information:

  • Administrative Grants: 1:1 ratio federal-to-state matching funds.
  • Coastal Resource Improvement Program: 1:1 ratio federal-to-state matching funds (subset of 306 funding).
