Pennsylvania hands out coastal preservation grants

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection recently announced it awarded $1.2 million in Coastal Zone Management Grants to organizations dedicated to protecting and preserving the state's coastal zones along Lake Erie and the Delaware Estuary.

“Our coastal waters of the Delaware Estuary and Lake Erie are a unique gift, but with this gift comes responsibility," DEP secretary Mike Krancer said in a statement. “These grants will help us protect and conserve these great coastal resources for all of our citizens and visitors to enjoy, and they will benefit our economy.”

The annual grants, largely funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, were awarded to 26 nonprofit and government organizations in counties that border Pennsylvania's coastal zones or have a direct effect on water quality in those areas.

Pennsylvania has two coastal areas: a 112-mile stretch along the Delaware Estuary and 76 miles along Lake Erie.
