Welcome to Gulf Coast Protection District

The Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD) was created in 2021 by the 87th regular Texas Legislature to become the non-federal sponsor of the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management (S2G) and Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Feasibility (Coastal Texas) studies, known together as the Coastal Barrier. The GCPD contains approximately 5,220 square miles of land covering Chambers, Galveston, Harris, Jefferson and Orange counties. Upon completion of construction, the GCPD will operate and maintain these improvements in conjunction with local jurisdictions.

Our Mission: To protect Texas Gulf Coast communities, the environment, and economic activity from storm surge.
