This week, you will have a chance to tell the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) how you think it should spend millions of dollars in new federal funds.
Public meetings will be held in all three coastal counties this week. At the meetings, officials from DEQ will explain the Coastal Impact Assistance Program.
Mississippi is expected to receive between 18 and 26 million dollars to protect and improve the environment. The coast will get 35 percent of that.
The DEQ wants to know how you think the money should be spent.
