Texas Coastal Management Program Updated:09/2022

The Texas Coastal Management Program (CMP), funded by NOAA, focuses on the state's coastal natural resource areas. The program is managed by the Texas Land Commissioner. 

The Texas General Land Office:

  • Awards approximately $2.2 million annually in grants
  • Reviews federal actions in the Texas coastal zone to ensure consistency with the goals and policies of the CMP
  • Supports protection of natural habitats and wildlife
  • Provides baseline data on the health of gulf waters

The federally approved program brings approximately $2.2 million in federal Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) funds to Texas, most of which goes to state and local entities to implement projects and program activities. Texas is one of only a handful of coastal states that pass substantial amounts of CZMA funds through to coastal communities for projects in the coastal zone.
