OFFICE FOR COASTAL MANAGEMENT

Evaluation Findings

The Coastal Zone Management Act calls for periodic performance reviews of state and territorial coastal programs and reserves. The process includes the close participation of state and local stakeholders and other interested parties. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration assesses the accomplishments and needs of reserves and coastal programs and provides recommendations to enhance their programs.

Note: If a state/territory does not have an active link to the evaluation findings, it is because the latest evaluation findings are in the process of being finalized.
