The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Coastal Resources Division (CRD), solicits proposals for Coastal Incentive Grants (CIG) awarded under the Georgia Coastal Management Program (GCMP). It is the mission of the GCMP to balance economic development in Georgia’s coastal area with preservation of natural, environmental, historic, archaeological, and recreational resources for the benefit of Georgia’s present and future generations.
The themes of the program are
- Oceans and Wetlands
- Public Access and Land Conservation
- Sustainable Communities
- Disaster Resiliency and Coastal Hazards
- Non-Point Source Pollution
Only Georgia Qualified Local Governments (counties and municipalities approved by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs) in the eleven-county coastal area, Georgia state government agencies (except DNR), and Georgia government affiliated educational and research institutions are eligible for a CIG sub-grant award. Applications from other parties will be considered if sponsored by an eligible entity.
Eligible projects must concentrate entirely or be physically located within at least one of the eleven (11) designated Georgia counties within the GCMP service area. GCMP eligible counties include Brantley, Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Charlton, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, and Wayne.
