Three States to Receive $99 Million for Sandy Recovery

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will be providing $99 million in conservation funding to victims in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. The funds will be used on 671 acres of hurricane-damaged property, making them more storm and flood resistant.

Coastal communities in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York will be receiving $99 million in funds from the USDA as part of an effort to restore 671 acres damaged from Hurricane Sandy. The acreage will become floodplain easements, which will help the areas be more resilient to floods and storms.

"More homeowners and communities that are still struggling from Hurricane Sandy will now find relief," said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. "Restoring and protecting floodplain areas will also reduce the potential for future flooding impacts and improve wildlife habitat and long-term environmental stability."

This will mark the second round of floodplain easements on privately-owned land that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
