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. 

FCMP Spotlight

Join us for FCMP's Coastal Partnership Initiative grant information sessions!

The Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) is excited to announce informational sessions to present the Coastal Partnership Initiative (CPI) program and 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. The CPI grants, offered by the FCMP, serve as a remarkable 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.

The FCMP has scheduled three information sessions at the National Estuarine Research Reserves across the state to ensure broad accessibility and foster active engagement. The dates and locations of those sessions are as follows:

  1. May 31, 2023, at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTMNERR), located at 505 Guana River Road in Ponte Vedra Beach.
  2. June 15, 2023, at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR), located at 108 Island Drive in Eastpoint.
  3. June 20, 2023, at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (RBNERR), located at 300 Tower Road in Naples.

Each session will begin promptly at 9:30 AM EST and is expected to last until noon. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in informative presentations, interactive discussions, and Q&A sessions with FCMP grant program staff. The sessions will be facilitated by experts well-versed in the grant program and its requirements, providing attendees with valuable insights to help them prepare competitive proposals.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to mark their calendars and RSVP for the information session that best suits their availability. To secure a spot, please visit the event registration website and complete the registration form. Due to limited seating, early registration is highly recommended.
