Shore Friendly Kitsap

Shore Friendly Kitsap is a program to assist marine shoreline homeowners who are interested in voluntarily removing all or part of their old bulkhead, and naturalizing their beaches with soft shore alternatives.

The Shore Friendly Kitsap program can provide:

  • Free informational site visits with staff,
  • Assistance navigating the permit process, and
  • Mini-grants to assist with qualified bulkhead removal projects (typically $5,000).

Stay tuned for new opportunities in 2020:

  • Homeowner workshops for shoreline landowners
  • Free site erosion visits from a licensed coastal geologist (who specializes in coastal environments) to discuss your shoreline
