Coastal Risk Mitigation Program
The Coastal Risk Mitigation Program is an ongoing grants program that provides financial assistance to Victorian coastal Crown land managers for the reduction of coastal risk.
The closing date for 2013-14 funding round applications is 15 May 2013.
The main objective of the Coastal Risk Mitigation Program is to provide financial assistance to coastal Crown land managers for projects that reduce coastal risk through identification, mitigation and monitoring. Given the range of risks that are inherent in a dynamic coastal environment, the program aims to support a strategic and balanced approach to risk management along the Victorian coast.
Grant applications up to $150,000 are sought for projects that will reduce coastal risk on Crown land by one or more of the following means:
|Risk context development||Risk assessment frameworks and guidelines
|Risk identification, assessment & evaluation||Feasibility/preliminary studies and investigations
Condition or safety audits
|Risk treatment||Works supported by strategic risk assessments, Coastal Action Plans, etc.
Removal of damaged or dangerous assets
Renewal/replacement of coastal dependent assets or infrastructure
Installation of signage and access barriers or fencing
Construction of safe access (e.g. handrails, stairs, ramps)
Engineering responses to geological and erosion risks
|Monitoring||Land stability monitoring
Longitudinal studies, (e.g. erosion, coastal processes, geotechnical)
