Coastal Management

Michigan is graced with the nation’s longest freshwater coastline bordered by four of the five Great Lakes. With this blessing comes great responsibility for the protection and preservation of its natural resources and cultural heritage for current and future generations.

Fresh Coast, Best Coast

Established in 1978, the Michigan Coastal Management Program (MCMP) is committed to providing substantial technical assistance and strategic grant funding to assist in coastal communities’ ability to understand risks and options to mitigate coastal hazards; create healthy habitats that provide for human use and enjoyment; support coastal eco-tourism opportunities while ensuring for safe public access; and support resilient and sustainable coastal economies. As connectors and collaborators, the MCMP advances the research on a changing climate, resilient planning methods, and seeks balanced approaches to sustainable coastline.
