The Federal Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) authorizes funds to be distributed to Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas producing states to mitigate the impacts of OCS oil and gas activities. The State of Alaska is a recipient of federal CIAP funds..
The Alaska Legislature appropriated approximately one-half of the State of Alaska’s CIAP funds to the Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development (DCCED) for capital project grants to named recipient jurisdictions, and to publicly-solicited applicants. The Division of Community and Regional Affairs (DCRA) administers DCCED’s CIAP funds as the Community Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CCIAP), to distinguish from the appropriations to the Departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Game, for the community-based focus of DCRA’s programs.
Technical assistance is available to all CCIAP grantees for project management, planning, and grant administration.
