Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California government agencies for activities to protect the State's coasts and beaches. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to reduce beach erosion and resultant economic loss, preserve shorelines, and maintain important recreational beach areas.

California's coast, one of the most precious resources, is a naturally eroding shoreline. It is both economically and socially important to minimize the loss of the State's beaches and to preserve its coastal resources. When erosion threatens to damage valuable public infrastructure, or there is not enough beach width to accommodate the recreational needs of the local population and the State's many visitors, beach erosion control projects at carefully selected places can slow the erosion.

DBW administers two coastal protection programs: The Shoreline Erosion Control Program and the Public Beach Restoration Program.

  • The Shoreline Erosion Control Program can assist in the planning and construction of all types of beach erosion control and shoreline stabilization measures, including hard structures like seawalls. This program can fund up to 50 percent of nonfederal project costs.
  •  The Public Beach Restoration Program can assist in the planning and construction of engineered placement of sand on the beach or in the nearshore environment. This program can fund up to 85 percent of nonfederal project costs at nonstate beaches.

The objectives of these programs can be achieved by:

  • Cosponsoring the construction of beach erosion control projects with local and federal agencies,
  • Improving present knowledge of oceanic forces, beach erosion and shoreline conditions, and
  • Using this knowledge to prevent future erosion.

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no maximum or minimum grant amount per project. In recent years, the smallest grants for study projects have been in the $40,000-$50,000 range. The largest annual grants for beach restoration projects have been in the $5 million-$6.5 million range.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Government agencies in California are eligible to apply.

Pre-Application Information:

The application and supporting documents must be received by DBW no later than 5:00pm on Monday, December 16, 2019.

There is a separate application for each program. Applicants choose which program to apply to based on the type of solution the applicant seeks to implement and the amount of funding the applicant intends to contribute to the project.

Applicants are requested to contact Casey Caldwell prior to submitting the application to verify that they will apply to the appropriate program.

When the Governor’s budget is released in January 2021, it will include a list of projects that are proposed to the Legislature for grant funding in the fiscal year 2021-22. The State budget will be finalized in June 2021. DBW typically prepares grant agreements for approved projects several months thereafter.

DBW grant funds are not available to grantees until a fully executed grant agreement is in place. DBW will not fund any project work that occurs before that time.
