§ 54-1107. State assistance application procedure and standards.

In the case of coastal rehabilitation projects, a municipality or

submit an application to the commissioner, in such form and containing
such information as the commissioner may require, for state assistance
payments toward the cost of a project which is within the state of New

The commissioner shall review such project application and may approve,
disapprove or recommend modifications thereto consistent with applicable
law, criteria, standards or rules and regulations relative to such
projects. Such criteria and standards shall include, but not be limited
to: the consistency of the project with the Coastal Erosion Hazard Areas

subdivision three of section 34-0108 of this chapter; the official
coastal policies of the state pursuant to article 42 of the executive
law; the extent of natural damages to the coastal area and the
suitability and feasibility of the project in relation to maintaining
natural resource features and functions; the importance of the coastal
area to recreational resources, fish and wildlife resources, and/or
endangered or threatened species habitat; and the public benefits
provided by the project.

Upon approval of a project application, a municipality or
not-for-profit corporation shall enter into a contract, as further
provided within this article, with the commissioner for state assistance
payments toward the cost of such project to be received pursuant to this
article.
