Nearly $5 million in funding is available for councils, researchers, business and community groups over the next four years for practical on-ground coastal projects which will deliver environmental and economic benefits, the Government of South Australia reports. 

According to their official statement, the State Government, with the Coast Protection Board, is providing funding and calling on further applications for projects to restore and protect the state’s coastline.

South Australia’s coastlines are at risk of erosion, flooding and sand dune drift, which are being exacerbated by rising sea levels.

Fifteen coastal councils will share in more than $1 million in round one of the Regional Coast Protection Fund to help repair, restore and sustain South Australia’s 5000 km of regional coastline.

The coastal councils will deliver twenty projects such as design and construction of protection works, beach replenishment, and coastal hazard risk and adaptation planning. Also five councils will share in $190,000 worth of research and development funding towards South Australia’s long-term coastal management and protection.

Applications for the research and development funding close on 31 January.

The 2019-20 Coastal Community Participation Grants will be available until all funding is allocated, said the Government.
