Coastal Community Development Program

New York Great Lakes coastal communities depend on healthy ecosystems for their economic vitality.

Changing weather patterns, invasive species, population growth and recreational pressure are potential threats to natural resources, which often drive regional economics.

With the numerous interests that exist from stakeholder groups including local governments, businesses, planners and resource managers, an understanding of Great Lakes ecosystems can be complicated but vital in decision-making processes.

This is why New York Sea Grant (NYSG) launched its Coastal Community Development Program (CCDP) in 2011.
