RESTORE Council awards grants for Gulf-wide Restoration to Louisiana for Marsh Creation and Living Shoreline Projects

November 1, 2016

The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has been awarded two grants totaling approximately $7.5 million from the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (RESTORE Council) for engineering and design of the Golden Triangle Marsh Creation ($3.2M) project and the Biloxi Marsh Living Shoreline ($4.3M) project under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act). These projects represent two out of seven total projects that were selected for funding by the RESTORE Council under its Initial Funded Priorities List that will directly benefit Louisiana. One additional grant in the amount of $7.3 million was funded by the RESTORE Council in September for the engineering and design of the West Grand Terre Beach Nourishment and Stabilization Project.
