Western Australia Coastal Grants Now Available

Applications are now open for the State Government’s 2015-16 Coastwest grants and Coastal Management Plan Assistance Program grants, the Government of Western Australia just announced.

Planning Minister John Day said that $600,000 was available for coastal managers and community groups undertaking initiatives aimed at the protection and management of Western Australia’s coastlines.

“Through these grant programs we can help to overcome the challenges facing WA’s coast including population growth, competing uses and rising sea levels,” Mr Day said.

“The programs also support the implementation of State Planning Policy 2.6 State Coastal Planning, which guides land use and development along the State’s coastline.”

The Coastal Management Plan Assistance Program provides funding to coastal land managers, primarily local government authorities, to develop strategies that balance competing land uses and plan appropriately for coastal hazards and risks.

Coastwest grants are provided to coastal managers and community groups working in partnership to manage and enhance WA’s coastline.
