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. 

Applications for 2020-21 have closed. Successful recipients are listed below.

The next round of grants will open soon. Keep an eye on Grants & Opportunities or subscribe to the Coast eNews to keep informed on coastal grants.
