I. Abstract

    Section 384 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-58) 
established the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP). This program 
provides Federal grant funds derived from Federal offshore lease 
revenues to oil-producing States for:
     Conservation, protection, or restoration of coastal areas, 
including wetlands;
     Mitigation of damage to fish, wildlife, or natural 
resources;
     Planning assistance and the administrative costs of 
complying with these objectives;
     Implementation of a federally approved marine, coastal, or 
comprehensive conservation management plan; and
     Mitigation of the impact of Outer Continental Shelf 
activities through funding of onshore infrastructure projects and 
public service needs.
    The States of Alabama, Alaska, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, 
and Texas are eligible for CIAP funding. Also eligible to receive CIAP 
funds are 67 coastal political subdivisions (CPS) in the 6 States. The 
affected States have prepared Statewide CIAP plans that include 
proposed projects. The federally approved CIAP plans have also been 
coordinated through a public review process.
    Once a project is approved, we must monitor the project to 
determine that the CIAP funds are being used for appropriate expenses. 
The monitoring will be achieved through the grant regulations that 
require grantees to provide, at a minimum, an annual progress report 
and a financial status report.
