BATON ROUGE, LA – Dec. 13, 2017 – Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) announces $20 million in projects selected for funding have been approved by the CPRA Board in the initial round of the CPRA Parish Matching Program under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act). CPRA set aside up to $100 million over a 15-year period from its RESTORE Act Spill Impact Component funds to establish this program. This investment will nearly double the amount of funds the parishes will receive over that same time period under the RESTORE Act Direct Component.
