Coastal management plan assistance program

The grants support coastal land managers to develop strategies and management plans for coastal areas

Coastal Management Plan Assistance Program (CMPAP) grants are administered by the department on behalf of the Western Australian Planning Commission.

The grants support coastal land managers to develop strategies and management plans for coastal areas that are, or are predicted to become, under pressure from a range of challenges.

CMPAP grants support the Commission’s State Planning Policy 2.6 – State Coastal Planning Policy (SPP2.6), which guides land use and development along WA’s coast.

Funding is available to:

  • coastal local government authorities
  • Aboriginal corporations / land councils with responsibilities for coastal land management
  • coastal NRM organisations in partnership with (1) and/or (2) above.
