The Marine Minerals Program (MMP) has worked with 18 states on cooperative agreements through which hundreds of millions of cubic yards of OCS sediment has been identified for use in beach nourishment and coastal restoration projects. For example, Federal, state, and local government agencies have constructed projects in Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia using sediment evaluated through the cooperative program, including several done on an emergency basis

Over the past nearly 30 years, BOEM has executed cooperative agreements with the following 18 states; Alabama, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Currently, BOEM has ongoing cooperative agreements with 16 of these states (Alabama and California being the exceptions).
