Survey of State Funding Practices for Coastal Port Infrastructure

This report summarizes what Texas and 10 other states are doing to directly or indirectly fund port-related infrastructure in their state. The geographical range begins with Texas and moves along the Gulf and East Coasts up to Massachusetts. The focus is on coastal deep-draft ports. They tend to have the highest capital investment needs and the greatest impact on surrounding communities. However, since most programs do not target only coastal ports, the data presented in this report often include references to both inland and coastal ports. This report presents detailed information on a state-by-state basis. The information is grouped into three categories for each state: channel improvement project state funding, direct state funding to port authorities, and indirect funding and incentive programs designed to encourage port development.
