Coastal Resilience Grants Announced for Wildwood and North Wildwood

The Christie Administration has announced that Wildwood and North Wildwood will receive a total of nearly $22 million in grants for projects that will make them more resilient to flooding and storms as part of the state’s overall goal of providing robust protections to coastal areas.

The Administration initiated the grant program as a result of the devastating impacts Superstorm Sandy had on the state four years ago.

“The Christie Administration remains committed to stronger and safer coastal communities through a wide range of strategies that include construction of robust beach and dune systems, measures to protect critical water and wastewater infrastructure, innovative strategies to restore degraded salt marshes to absorb storm surge, and financial and technical resources to improve stormwater infrastructure,” DEP Commissioner Bob Martin said.

The Flood Hazard Risk Reduction and Resiliency Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program.

This is the second round of funding under the $50 million grant program by HUD, available to municipalities, counties and local government agencies to improve storm resiliency.
