Grants to Washington local, state, and tribal governmental agencies for the protection and enhancement of aquatic lands, including shorelands, harbor areas, tidelands, and beds of navigable waters. Funding may be used for the improvement, protection, or acquisition of qualifying aquatic lands for public purposes. Funding may also be used to provide or improve public access to the waterfront.
In 1984, the Washington State Legislature created this grant program to ensure that money generated from aquatic lands was used to protect and enhance those lands.
ALEA projects must be associated with navigable waters of the state as defined by Washington Administrative Code 332-30-106, Revised Code of Washington 79.105, and Article 17 of the State Constitution.
All marine waters are, by definition, navigable, as are portions of rivers influenced by tides. Navigable rivers and lakes are those determined by the judiciary, those bounded by meander lines, or those that could have been used for commerce at the time of statehood.
