Community Advisory Committee

Community Advisory Committee (CAC) members learn more about the issues and challenges facing Tampa Bay and share that knowledge with citizens in the watershed. We consider them the Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s “Citizen-Ambassadors” for the bay. From serving as judges for our Bay Mini-Grant program to providing insights from the communities and interest groups they represent, our CAC members are an invaluable resource, connecting our Program to the community. 

Members of the CAC are also responsible for the selection of the “Golden Mangrove Award” presented annually in recognition of TBEPs most outstanding Bay Mini-Grant from the preceding year. 

For more information, contact Public Outreach Specialist Sheila Scolaro.
