CPRA Board Approves Six Projects Under RESTORE Act

Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority announces that $20 million in projects selected for funding have been approved by the CPRA Board in the initial round of the CPRA Parish Matching Program under RESTORE Act.

CPRA set aside up to $100 million over a 15-year period from its RESTORE Act Spill Impact Component funds to establish this program. This investment will nearly double the amount of funds the parishes will receive over that same time period under the RESTORE Act Direct Component.

We are always looking for ways to make parish and state funds go farther and this program serves as an excellent model for how to partner at the state and local level to maximize project outcomes,” said Johnny Bradberry, Chairman of the CPRA Board.

These projects represent parish priorities that are consistent with the Coastal Master Plan and we are excited to get these important projects moving forward,” said Michael Ellis, Executive Director of the CPRA.

The projects selected for funding under this initial round include:

  • Construction of the Rockefeller Shoreline Stabilization Project in Cameron Parish ($6.67M);
  • Engineering and Design of the Grand Bayou Freshwater Reintroduction Project in Lafourche Parish ($412,722);
  • Construction of the Lake Lery Marsh Creation Project in St. Bernard Parish ($2.78M);
  • Construction of the Paradis Canal Gate in St. Charles Parish ($2.54M);
  • Engineering and Design and Construction of the Manchac Landbridge Shoreline Protection Project in Tangipahoa Parish ($3M);
  • Engineering and Design and Construction of the Freshwater Bayou Canal Shoreline Protection Project in Vermilion Parish ($4.59M).
