Program Evaluations

NOAA conducts periodic evaluations of state and territorial coastal management programs and National Estuarine Research Reserves as called for in the Coastal Zone Management Act. Evaluations assess accomplishments and needs and include recommendations for program enhancements. There are opportunities for the public to provide written comments or attend a public meeting. A final evaluation report summarizes the process and results.
