Florida Resilient Coastlines Program 

Through the Florida Resilient Coastlines Program, DEP continues its efforts to help ensure collaboration among Florida’s coastal communities and to offer technical assistance and funding to coastal communities dealing with increasingly complex flooding, erosion and habitat shifts.

Local communities can assess vulnerabilities to projected increases in coastal flooding and erosion and can develop strategies to make affected areas more resilient. Protecting and strengthening natural infrastructure also can help. Coral reefs, mangroves, oyster reefs and marshes are our first lines of defense. DEP's Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection is committed to helping prepare Florida’s communities and habitats for changes resulting from sea level rise by:

  • Providing funding and technical assistance to prepare Florida’s coastal communities.
  • Continuing to promote and ensure a coordinated approach to sea level rise planning among state, regional and local agencies.

Community Resources 

The Florida Adaptation Planning Guidebook is a resource for communities interested in vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning. The culmination of more than five years of research and in partnership with many state agencies, the guidebook outlines steps and best practices for local governments. Download the Florida Adaptation Planning Guidebook. Development of the FAPG was funded by the Florida Coastal Management Program and NOAA.
