RESTORE ACT
CENTER OF
EXCELLENCE


FOR LOUISIANA

The mission of the RESTORE Act Center of Excellence for Louisiana (Center) is to provide research directly relevant to implementation of Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan by administering a competitive grants program and providing the appropriate coordination and oversight support to ensure that success metrics are tracked and achieved. The Coastal Master Plan is a guiding document for the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA), developed using the best available science and engineering, that focuses efforts and guides the actions needed to sustain Louisiana’s coastal ecosystem, safeguard coastal populations, and protect vital economic and cultural resources. The Center is sponsored by CPRA and administered by the Water Institute of the Gulf, a not-for-profit, independent applied research institute dedicated to providing advanced understanding and technical expertise to support management of coastal, deltaic and water systems, within Louisiana, the Gulf Coast and around the world.
