This report aims to bring abstract budget line items and federal agency programs to life through a series of nine real-world case studies that highlight the positive impact of coastal habitat restoration efforts on job creation, enhanced tourism, recreation, community protection, human health, and abundant fisheries. Each case study takes an in-depth look at the unique local challenges, restoration actions, role of federal funding, and resulting beneficial impacts on the community. Case studies were developed in close coordination and extensive input from on-the-ground partners responsible for implementing each project.
