The Texas Coastal Conservation Initiative led by Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) leverages private investment to maximize conservation of Texas’ magnificent coastal resources following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Approximately $800 million in mitigation funding is available to Texas through 2031, creating an extraordinary opportunity for transformational public-private partnerships. In early 2017, TPWF established the Gulf Coast Conservation Loan Fund that provides cost-effective interim financing to non-profit organizations for critically important and time-sensitive land conservation projects. By forging innovative funding partnerships with foundations, corporations and philanthropic individuals, TPWF is working to magnify the overall impact of mitigation funding on the Texas Gulf Coast at this unique moment in history.
