Restoration projects chosen

ADVERTISEMENT

A year after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the U.S. East Coast, the United States has pledged $162 million in 45 projects to restore marshes, wetlands and beaches, rebuild shorelines, and research the impacts and modeling mitigation of storm surge impacts.  



The U.S. Department of the Interior has already spent $480 million in Hurricane Sandy response and recovery efforts since the storm hit in late October 2012.



The funding provides $113 million for 25 on-the-ground projects and $45 million in modeling, coastal barrier mapping, and other projects to provide local land managers the information and tools to prepare for future storms.



Ninety-four projects sought $541 million. An additional $100 million in grant funding is available to states, local communities, non-profit organizations and other partners for innovative projects under the program (www.doi.gov/hurricanesandy).
