The federally approved Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) coordinates a number of coastal management activities with DEP programs, state agencies, water management districts and local governments that have responsibilities for managing coastal resources. The FCMP has two fundamental goals: protecting coastal resources and helping Floridians maintain vital communities.
FCMP activities are implemented through program support projects, special initiatives, grant programs, and coordinated reviews of federal activities for consistency with the statutory authorities in the FCMP.
