Hawai`i Coastal and Estuarine Land conservation Plan

Town In recognition of the need to provide long-term protection for significant coastal and estuarine resources, Congress created the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP) in 2002. This national initiative enables states to permanently protect coastal and estuarine lands by providing matching funds for community-based projects to acquire property from willing sellers (either in full or through conservation easements).

To participate in the national program, a Hawaii Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Plan is being prepared by the University of Hawaii for the Hawaii Coastal Zone Management Program.
