FEMA Grant for Scituate Seawall

United States Senators Elizabeth Warren and Edward J. Markey, along with Representative Stephen F. Lynch have announced nearly $1.7 million in federal funding for the Town of Scituate to fortify the Third Cliff seawall.

The Third Cliff was damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and the federal funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will assist with foreshore protection.

The federal grant of $1,680,851.33 from FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund for the Town of Scituate will cover 75% of the total project. Scituate will use the funding to repair the Third Cliff Revetment, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

In addition to the grant funding for the Town of Scituate, FEMA also announced $1,311,593.00 in federal funding for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to administer the Public Assistance Program declaration following the severe weather during the winter of 2015.

The Massachusetts Congressional Delegation has repeatedly appealed to the federal government to assist the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with additional funding for the disaster recovery efforts following the historic storms in 2015.
