Coastal Stewards is managed by the Maryland Coastal Bays Program and Delmarva Low-Impact Tourism Experiences, partnered with the Lower Shore Workforce Alliance, Assateague Island National Seashore, and Assateague State Park. Additional partners include area museums, tourism offices, parks, and conservation groups. This program is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the National Park Service, and the Ocean City-Berlin Optimist Club.
