This study assessed the feasibility of a revolving loan fund, which would finance low-interest loans for residential shoreline projects like hard armor removal, soft-shore stabilization, and elevating or moving homes landward to reduce flooding risk under sea level rise. This study includes a technical report by CGS on the costs of these Shore Friendly actions, which is the most comprehensive regional cost study to-date.
