Coastal Adaptation and Protection (CAP) grants

Find out about the Coastal Adaptation and Protection grants, which are available for local coastal management projects in Western Australia.

  Overview - Coastal Adaptation and Protection grants

Coastal Adaptation and Protection (CAP) Grants provides financial assistance for local projects that identify and manage coastal hazards.

The program seeks to preserve and enhance coastal assets for the general public, building partnerships with local coastal managers, and helping them understand and adapt to coastal hazards.

The Department of Transport also provides non-financial assistance, such as:

  • Engineering and technical support.
  • Coastal data.
  • Guidance and advice.

Formerly known as the Coastal Protection Grants, the program was introduced to reduce the high cost of coastal management for local authorities. The program was revised in response to increased requests for funding from local managers.
