RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider submission of a grant application to the Texas General Land Office for the Coastal Management Program (CMP) - Cycle 18.
BACKGROUND
The Coastal Management Program (CMP) focuses on five primary issues of concern to coastal communities: coastal hazards, wetland protection, water quantity and water quality, dune protection, and shoreline access. Specifically, the CMP identifies coastal natural resource areas (CNRAs) and identifies uses or activities that may adversely affect those areas, and sets uniform policies to address those effects.

The following are allowable funding categories: Coastal Natural Hazards Response, Critical Areas Enhancement, Critical Areas Enhancement, Shoreline Access, Water Quantity and Quality Improvements, Waterfront Revitalization and Ecotourism Development, Permit Streamlining/Assistance and Governmental Coordination, Information and Data Availability, and Public Education and Outreach.
DISCUSSION
The Coastal Coordination Council of the Texas General Land Office has announced they will be accepting pre-application proposals for their Coastal Management Program (CMP) grant fund. On June 27, 2012, the Commissioners Court approved the submission of a pre-proposal.

On July 25, 2012, we received valuable feedback on the proposed project ideas. Based on those comments, the final grant application will be generated and submitted prior to the deadline of September 26, 2012.

The maximum total project must be $100,000 or less per application. The matching fund requirement is 60%/40%, in-kind or cash match.
