NC Governor Awards $100,000 to Help Coastal Communities

Seven coastal communities will get grants totaling $100,000 to help them prepare for hurricanes, storms and growth, North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper, announced yesterday. 

The N.C. Division of Coastal Management uses a portion of its federal funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to support local land-use planning and management projects in North Carolina’s 20 coastal counties.

“These grants will help coastal North Carolina alleviate flooding after hurricanes and big storms, plan for future growth and improve water quality,” Governor Cooper said.

“Recovering from Hurricane Matthew has shown us just how critical it is for local communities to prepare proactively for future disasters, and this state and local partnership does just that.”

Grant recipients were selected based on criteria and priorities set by the state’s Coastal Resources Commission. This year’s funding prioritized natural hazard mitigation and storm recovery projects.
