Nineteen grants totalling $822,897 have been awarded for Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) administered grants, to support local and regional coastal plans, reduce exposure to coastal hazards and enhance sustainable recreational and tourism. The remainder has been directed to grants administered by the Department of Transport (Transport).

The grants are one element of the CoastWA program, which is a collaboration between DPLH and Transport. CoastWA supports local governments, community organisations and other State Government agencies to plan, manage and respond to the increasing impacts of coastal erosion and inundation along WA’s coastline.

This significant investment is aimed at increasing community resilience and supporting coastal land managers and community groups in critical conservation, education and adaptation projects.
