Public Access

The Coastal Resources Division utilizes a portion of its NOAA grant funding through the Coastal Management Program for low cost construction projects and planning that result in the preservation of important natural areas, improved public water access, or renewal of urban waterfronts.  Coastal Incentive Grants have bee used for may public access projects, including trails, boat ramps, and docks.  Information on Coastal Incentive Grants and previously awarded projects can be found on our Grants page.  Also, Coastal Resource Specialists are available to work with communities to preserve important coastal resources and enhance public access through the Program's Technical Assistance Initiative.  For more information please contact Sonny Emmert at (912) 264-7218 or sonny.emmert@dnr.ga.gov
