Northern Gulf of Mexico Coastal Program Updated:07/2019

The goals of the Northern Gulf Coastal Program (NGCP)

  • To effecvely restore or enhance degraded coastal wetlands and uplands, estuaries, and riparian corridors along the coasts of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, and within the context of climate change and sea level rise;
  • To establish living shorelines as the primary means for protecting eroding shorelines in these coastal areas where appropriate, thereby steering coastal protection efforts away from hardening;
  • To form partnerships with private groups and government agencies to strategically restore, enhance, conserve, and protect coastal habitat and resources;
  • To implement the Strategic Habitat Conservation framework to put the right conservation in the right places across the coastal landscape for the benefit of fish and wildlife.

The majority of available funds will support projects that occur in the following six watersheds:

Relevant projects located in adjacent watersheds may also be considered, including the entire Louisiana coast. The project area covers an area of almost 10 million acres, including 21 counties or parishes.
