Motivation and Goal

The goal of the U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP) is to develop a national coordinated science research program to address societal needs along the coast.  USCRP is a collaboration of Federal agencies, academics, and stakeholders that aims to identify research needs, foster research opportunities, enhance funding for academic programs, and promote science translation.
