Coastal Grants
The OCMP assists coastal governments in their land use activities by providing federal money for plan maintenance, plan amendment, and periodic review. All coastal jurisdictions that have acknowledged comprehensive plans approved by NOAA/Ocean and Coastal Resource Management for inclusion in the OCMP are eligible. In 2001 the Department developed, in coordination and collaboration with coastal local governments, a methodology for allocation, management, and distribution of coastal grant funds for local governments. This methodology is based on these components:
  1. a base coastal planning grant calculated using 2000 Census data, with a $3,000 minimum grant level for all small jurisdictions with less than 3000 persons;
  2. additions to the base coastal planning grant to recognize specific needs and issues faced by local jurisdictions, such as high growth rates, amount of coastal resource lands and shoreline, and
  3. technical assistance grants for high priority projects and implementation activities associated with the four statewide coastal land use goals.
These grants are awarded by DLCD and managed by the regional representatives who collect, review and verify the forms (located further down this page).

Technical Assistance Grants
High priority project technical assistance grants support major projects that are "above and beyond" the ongoing, regular plan implementation activities. These special allocations for high priority coastal resources management and critical planning needs address issues identified by local planners, state agency resource specialists, and federal agency representatives. Examples of types of special high priority projects that have been funded include: GIS information development and mapping for local needs, GIS training and software for planners, riparian habitat inventories, and buildable lands inventories. Applications for special high priority projects are submitted by local jurisdictions and evaluated by OCMP staff. The grants are executed using the existing DLCD "technical assistance grants" procedure.
