Florida Coastal Management Program

The Florida Coastal Management Program is based on a network of agencies implementing 24 statutes that protect and enhance the state's natural, cultural and economic coastal resources.

The program's goal is to coordinate local, state and federal agency activities using existing laws to ensure that Florida's coast is as valuable to future generations as it is today.

Florida Coastal Management Program Summer Information Sessions for Coastal Partnership Initiative Grant Opportunity

The Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) is excited to announce an upcoming series of information sessions for the Coastal Partnership Initiative (CPI) grant opportunity. These sessions aim to provide interested organizations and individuals with comprehensive details about the grant program, its objectives, eligibility criteria, and application process. Sessions will be held around the state in June and July, 2024, and each session will cover identical content. Dates and registration information are provided below. Staff also plan to host a booth in the exhibit hall at the Florida League of Cities conference in August to provide information on a variety of Department grant opportunities.

The CPI grants, offered by the FCMP utilizing federal Coastal Zone Management Act funding, are an opportunity for coastal communities, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies to secure funding for projects that promote the conservation, restoration, and sustainable management of Florida's invaluable coastal resources.

FCMP grant staff will also share information about other exciting opportunities, including details on federal funding exclusively for coastal management projects offered under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and information on upcoming multi-year management strategies and projects supported by Coastal Zone Management Act funds.
