The Lake Michigan Coastal Program

LMCP’s annual competitive grants program awards funds to units of local government, regional and state agencies, colleges and universities, and non-profit organizations. Program funds may be expended on projects that support public access, habitat improvements, land acquisition, planning and coordination, education and outreach, and applied research in Indiana’s Lake Michigan coastal region. Projects must be located entirely within the northern portions of Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties.

With an annual allocation of approximately $600,000 in grant funding, LMCP has provided more than $13 million to local partners for projects since 2001.

Funded through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Coastal Management, the LMCP was created, in part, to support projects that protect and restore natural, cultural, and historical resources in Indiana’s Lake Michigan coastal region.
