CPRA Open for New Project Ideas

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has just announced it is accepting project ideas that Louisiana citizens, governmental bodies and concerned organizations would like to see evaluated and considered for possible inclusion in the next Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast that will be submitted to the Louisiana Legislature in 2023.

Predictions in the 2017 Coastal Master Plan of future coastal land loss and storm surge-based flood risk, even with plan implementation, demonstrate that isolated project investments often provide minimal benefits beyond their immediate footprint or local area, reported CPRA.

Selecting projects for Louisiana’s Master 2023 Plan will integrate twenty-first century infrastructure investments systematically and at multiple scales to optimize outcomes even under severe environmental conditions,” said CPRA Executive Director Michael Ellison. “CPRA is eager to review new project proposals.

CPRA also added that the new projects can be proposed by any source, with emphasis on projects that continue to provide benefit in the face of sea level rise and subsidence without continued maintenance, those that make a contribution to maintaining estuarine gradients in future decades, and those that provide storm surge-based risk reduction at the community or regional scale.

Please see the New Project Development Program Guidelines and Criteria here.

On October 17, 2018, CPRA will host an informational webinar to review the details of the new project development solicitation.
