Hurricane Sandy Recovery and Mitigation




The Department of the Interior is investing $787 million in federal funding for Hurricane Sandy recovery to clean up and repair damaged national parks and wildlife refuges; restore and strengthen coastal marshes, wetlands and shoreline; connect and open waterways to increase fish passage and improve flood resilience; and bolster local efforts to protect communities from future storms.

These investments have the dual benefit of providing jobs while supporting the goal of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan to make communities more resilient to future storms predicted with a changing climate. Interior is also supporting the development of new science to better understand impacts of storms and sea level rise on coastal ecosystems and help managers respond and adapt to changing environmental conditions.
