Rhode Island Sea Grant is one of 34 programs in the National Sea Grant College Program.
We are a state-based program with federal funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and are based at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography.
We work with coastal communities in the Ocean State to ensure access to the best available science and that everyone has a seat at the table to build long-term, sustainable solutions.
The most resilient communities are those that work together.
