The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program helps to coordinate the many state and local government programs impacting coasts through financial assistance, staff activities, and various other support tools. WCMP works closely with partners on many additional initiatives.
Southeastern Wisconsin Coastal Resilience Project
The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program is partnering with the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) on a NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant project to enhance community capacity in southeastern Wisconsin to build resilience to coastal hazards. This project will provide resources and assistance to southeastern Wisconsin communities in Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha Counties to plan and prepare for hazards like shoreline recession and bluff failure, beach erosion, coastal flooding, and damage to waterfront infrastructure.
