Established in 2006 by Governor Rick Perry, the Coastal Land Advisory Board (Board) provides recommendations to the Governor on the best use of state funds in the Texas Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP). The Board is also responsible for preparing the Texas CIAP Plan and any amendments to the plan, which the Governor submits to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The Governor designated the Texas General Land Office as the administrative agency for CIAP.

The Board is composed of three members. The Governor selected the Land Commissioner to serve as Chairman and two members of the Coastal Advisory Committee to serve on the Board. The Board meets as necessary.

Board meeting agendas are posted in the Texas Register and can be accessed via the Texas Secretary of State website. Agenda must be posted seven working days prior to a Board meeting.
