Virginia Institute of Marine Science - Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve System
Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program Support
Project Description as Proposed:
This task supports one staff position that is contracted through VIMS. VA CZM requires this additional support to ensure that there is increased emphasis on policy coordination; that open grants are properly managed and implemented; that performance indicators are reported; and that outreach activities are adequately staffed. The Coastal Planner position supported by this task will provide guidance on coastal management issues, assistance to grantees, agency monitoring, development and implementation of performance indicators, routine program changes and intergovernmental and interagency coordination.
This Coastal Planner (Shep Moon) will specifically focus on Tasks 2 (Quick response grants), 6 (MRCâ€™s permit review & compliance), 8 (VIMS Tidal Wetlands Management Technical Support), and half of the PDC Technical Assistance and focal area grants. He will develop, monitor and assist PIs with Section 309 projects related to management of shoreline features including beaches, dunes, and wetlands. The position will also manage projects that address the Section 309 Conservation Corridor strategy and other strategies as needed. He will also be specializing in climate change and coastal hazards issues.
