DEP Partners with Florida Sea Grant for Coastal Projects

DEP’s Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) has partnered with Florida Sea Grant to fund the completion of seven Coastal Partnership Initiative (CPI) grant-funded, community-based coastal projects around the state.

Florida Sea Grant has committed $150,000 this year to fund these projects, which will immediately benefit their communities and are matched dollar-for-dollar by the communities.

“The CPI grant program was developed to promote the protection and effective management of Florida’s coastal resources at the local level,” said Kevin Claridge, director of the Florida Coastal Office. 

“This partnership emphasizes our shared commitment for projects that have tangible, immediate and lasting benefits to coastal communities and citizens,” said Dr. Karl Havens, director of the Florida Sea Grant College Program.

“The seven projects chosen to receive Florida Sea Grant funding align with our mission areas of helping to increase community resilience, increase public access to the water front and/or restore natural habitat.”

The projects include:

  • City of Mexico Beach, Bay County;
  • City of Deerfield Beach, Broward County;
  • City of Oakland Park, Broward County;
  • City of Key Biscayne, Miami-Dade County;
  • City of Key West, Monroe County;
  • City of Ft. Pierce, St. Lucie County;
  • Volusia County.
