Alabama's coastal program balances coastal activities to ensure that the environment on which Alabama business depends remains healthy for generations to come. Major functions of the program are resource protection and public access. Resource protection encompasses a multitude of coastal resource issues such as shoreline erosion, water quality, air quality, wetland protection, wildlife habitat, industrial development, and hazard management. Providing adequate public access for recreation and commerce is a prime concern of the program. This is accomplished through low cost public access construction grants and land acquisition. The program works to ensure the protection of our coastal resources through planning, coordination with local governments, regulation, and public education.
