Restore the Wetlands - Protect the People
One source of funding for MRGO restoration projects is through the RESTORE Act, which could send billions of dollars to the Gulf Coast for ecosystem restoration. This funding will come from Clean Water Act penalties to be paid by responsible parties involved in the BP Oil Disaster of 2010, which is currently being litigated. Restoration project lists that will benefit from the RESTORE Act are currently being made by federal, state, and local governments. We are in the midst of an important opportunity to ensure MRGO-area projects are in line to receive funding. Make sure decision-makers prioritize the projects that will protect the Greater New Orleans area and restore the coastal habitat that has been destroyed.
