Local Government Capacity

  • Many communities are struggling to keep up with the increase in technological advances like GIS
  • Limited in their resources to utilize mapping technology
  • Tools often not effective as local government can not keep the information current, its not accessible, or in the appropriate format

CZMAReauthorization:Coastal Communities Program

  • Establishes a ready-made framework for addressing many of these community issues.
  • Provides funds to minimize the loss of life and property from coastal hazards by managing development in hazardous areas, providing education, and supporting local and state planning.
