Federal officials today announced the winners of more than $100 million in Hurricane Sandy
relief aid handed out through a competitive grant program for coastal protection projects.

Roughly a quarter of the $102.7 million awarded through the U.S. Department of the
Interior’s matching grant program has been earmarked for 13 projects in New Jersey,
including efforts to restore wetlands and dunes. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said those
types of natural infrastructure often provide the best protection from storms.
