District dollars help coastal communities with numerous projects that help their communities become more resilient. These cost-share funds are available for local governments, utilities, agriculture and other stakeholders and projects that relate to addressing one or more of four core missions of the district: water supply, water quality, natural system restoration and flood protection. In coastal communities these projects provide added benefit when considering the potential impacts of sea-level rise.
