For Local Governments

Column Paragraph

APNEP and our partners provide many tools to assist local governments. Our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) includes actions that aim to assist local governments, including educating policy and decision makers on the value of the ecosystem services of the region, developing incentives for protecting natural shorelines, policies that support Low Impact Development practices, assistance with stormwater retrofits and wastewater infrastructure upgrades and repairs, and assistance incorporating coastal resilience, climate change, and sea level rise into local planning. 

We do not currently have a dedicated municipal grant program, but routinely fund restoration and community engagement initiatives in the Albemarle-Pamlico region, including projects by county and municipal governments, through our Action Teams.
