Division of Coastal & Ocean Management

The Division of Coastal & Ocean Management was dissolved on July 1, 2011 with the sunset of the Alaska Coastal Management Program. This web page will be viewable for reference purposes through June 30, 2012.  It will then be archived within the Department of Natural Resources.  The website became static on July 1, 2011 and there will be no further updates to the content of the former ACMP website.  The Coastal Impact Assistance Program is now part of the Office of Project Management and Permitting. If you have any questions, please contact the DNR’s Commissioner’s Office at 907-269-8400.

Update: In response to the 2012 Ballot Initiative, this website will remain viewable at least until the Primary Election results are certified. As a reminder, the ACMP website remains static and has not been updated since June 2011.

Alaska Coastal Management Program

The Alaska Coastal Management Program (ACMP) provides stewardship for Alaska’s rich and diverse coastal resources to ensure a healthy and vibrant Alaskan coast that efficiently sustains long-term economic and environmental productivity.


Coastal Impact Assistance Program

The Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) authorizes the distribution of $960 million to the six Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas producing states to mitigate the impacts of OCS oil and gas activities. The State has an approved Alaska CIAP plan that describes how the $79.4 million allocation to Alaska will be used.
