CWPPRA Background
  • In 1990, the United States Congress recognized
    the national significance of wetland loss in
    Louisiana and passed the Coastal Wetlands
    Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (Public
    Law 101-646, Title III also known as the Breaux
    Act) to contribute federal monies and build upon
    existing state restoration activities.
  • In 2004, the United States Congress voted to
    extend CWPPRA for an additional 15 years, under
    the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005.
  • CWPPRA dedicated, this year, approximately 65
    million to wetland restoration projects in
    Louisiana.
  • CWPPRA is directed by a Task Force composed of
    five federal agencies the United States
    Departments of the Army, Agriculture, Commerce,
    and the Interior and the United States
    Environmental Protection Agency.
