Welcome to the Official Homepage of the Division of Coastal Resources Management (DCRM)
Established on 11 February 1983 by Public Law 3-47 within the Office of the Governor, and reorganized under the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality (BECQ) under the Governor's Executive Order 2013-24. The DCRM program was established in order to promote conservation and wise development around our coastal resources.
