New Project Fund
The CSS Project Fund provides a means of supporting projects that envision solutions to coastal issues
Louisiana’s coastal communities face tremendous challenges—human, economic, structural, natural, or scientific— many of which are not being solved because the various disciplines alone cannot cope with the magnitude and complexity of the problems. The CSS Project Fund provides a means of supporting projects that envision solutions to coastal issues through collaboration among a variety of academic perspectives.
