The Lake Michigan Coastal Program (LMCP) provides guidance, technical support and some financial assistance to municipal, county and state government agencies which are working within the coastal region. The coastal region of northwest Indiana roughly consists of the northern half of Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties. Work done in partnership with the LMCP must further the mission of the LMCP, which is to protect and enhance natural, cultural and historical coastal resources, and to foster coordination and partnerships among local, state and federal agencies, and local organizations. Funding and oversight are provided through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Office for Coastal Management (OCM).
