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. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is responsible for directing the implementation of the statewide coastal management program.
