Georgia DNR Receives NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has been awarded funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Regional Coastal Resilience Grant program to develop a Joint Disaster Recovery and Redevelopment Plan (DRRP) for the City of Brunswick and Glynn County.

Through this award, local partners in Glynn County will be working on a collaborative approach to long-term disaster recovery for coastal communities to create stronger economies and healthier environments after a disaster.

NOAA received 132 proposals totaling $105 million in requested funding and announced $4.5 million in recommended funding for six coastal resilience projects.

DNR will receive a total of $140,000 to facilitate the DRRP process in Glynn County – the third coastal county to work with DNR to develop a DRRP.

Chatham County began work with DNR in 2014 on the first DRRP in coastal Georgia.

In 2015, the Brantley County Commission signed a contract with DNR to develop their county-wide DRRP.
