Coastal Community Participation Grants
The Coast Protection Board’s Coastal Community Participation Grants support voluntary participation in local, small-scale coastal management initiatives.
The objectives of these grants are to:
- involve communities in coastal management
- enhance community skills and knowledge in rehabilitation, restoration and conservation of the coast and marine environment
- facilitate partnerships in coast and marine management
- encourage environmental protection in the wider community
- achieve practical management actions and on-ground works which enhance conservation values and/or tackle the causes of coast and marine degradation.
Applicants need to partner with a coastal council, and the council will administer the grant on their behalf.
