Grants to California government agencies for activities to protect the State's coasts and beaches. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to reduce beach erosion and resultant economic loss, preserve shorelines, and maintain important recreational beach areas.
California's coast, one of the most precious resources, is a naturally eroding shoreline. It is both economically and socially important to minimize the loss of the State's beaches and to preserve its coastal resources. When erosion threatens to damage valuable public infrastructure, or there is not enough beach width to accommodate the recreational needs of the local population and the State's many visitors, beach erosion control projects at carefully selected places can slow the erosion.
DBW administers two coastal protection programs: The Shoreline Erosion Control Program and the Public Beach Restoration Program.
The objectives of these programs can be achieved by:
