Bush Announces $1.74 Million for Coastal Protection Projects

George P. Bush

Land Commissioner, George P. Bush, last week announced the selection of 21 projects to be funded through the Texas Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 23, awarding a total of approximately $1.74 million in federal funds to improve the management of the state’s coastal resources and ensure its long-term ecological and economic productivity.

Texas CMP focuses on five primary issues of concern to coastal communities: coastal hazards, wetland protection, water quantity and quality, dune protection, and shoreline access.

“Coastal resiliency is vital to Texas’ economic vitality and the quality of life for those who visit and call it home,” said Commissioner George P. Bush.

“I am proud of the work the Texas General Land Office does in partnership with federal and local leaders to strengthen our state’s coastline and preserve natural storm mitigation resources. These 21 projects will have a profoundly positive impact on our coastal communities.”

Funding is provided through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

According to the official announcement, the projects will start in October 2018.
