The Lake Michigan Coastal Grants Program is an annual competitive grants program that awards up to $650,000 to units of local government, regional and state agencies, colleges and universities, and non-profit organizations. Program funds may be used on low-cost construction, land acquisition, planning and coordination, education and outreach, and applied research projects. Projects must be located entirely within the Lake Michigan Coastal area - the northern portion of Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties.
The DNR Lake Michigan Coastal Program was created to coordinate efforts between local, state and federal governments, and local organizations to support projects that protect and restore natural, cultural and historical resources in Indiana's Lake Michigan Coastal region.
The LMCP is funded through the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Coastal Resource Management.
