Grants to California government agencies to protect and preserve shorelines, reduce economic losses due to beach erosion, and maintain recreational beach areas. Applicants must confirm eligibility with program staff prior to applying. The general objectives of this program 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.

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.
