15A NCAC 07I .0102        POLICY

The purpose of these criteria is to establish the means and procedures by which local governments may request and receive the funds necessary to implement locally developed Coastal Area Management Act implementation and enforcement programs.  These provisions are designed to ensure that no local government will have to forego the assumption of permit‑letting authority because of inadequate local finances or to severely burden its local budget in order to undertake a Coastal Area Management Act local implementation and enforcement program.  These provisions are designed to ensure that localities will be treated uniformly yet equitably with the goal that two localities in similar situations will be similarly treated.
