Cardin, Van Hollen Announce Funding for Chesapeake Bay Foundation

Senator Ben Cardin

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen yesterday announced that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has awarded a $156,101 federal grant to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for a restoration project in the Choptank River Habitat Focus Area.

This project includes the installation of a living shoreline in the area surrounding Hambleton Island to address erosion and ensure coastal and community resilience.

Commenting the latest news, Senator Cardin, a senior member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said: “I’ll keep fighting to ensure our partners at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Choptank River Habitat Focus Area have the resources and funding they need to continue their important work.”

As we continue to push the Administration and the Army Corps of Engineers to prioritize oyster restoration, we are fighting hard for federal investments in programs like the Choptank River Habitat project. I will keep working to restore our Bay and support our watermen,” added Senator Van Hollen, a member of the Senate Appropriations and Budget Committees.

The Choptank River Complex was selected by NOAA as a Habitat Focus Area – a place where multiple NOAA offices and outside partners focus efforts to achieve healthier habitat.
