BATON ROUGE - A new state program will gather ideas to improve the results, lower the cost and cut the time required to build projects under Louisiana's master plan for coastal restoration.

The Coastal Innovation Partnership Program's first round of applications will be accepted from March 1 through March 22 with a one-page application will be available at http://www.thewaterinstitute.org/innovation starting March 1, said Natalie Peyronnin, senior scientist with the state Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.

The Advocate reports the program is a partnership of the authority and the Water Institute of the Gulf, a nonprofit organization that will manage applications, review them and present a report to the authority.
