City of Port Lavaca Shoreline Revitalization and Environmental Enhancement Strategy
In response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill Congress passed the RESTORE Act to protect and restore the natural and economic resources of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast. The Act provides funding for coastal restoration and recovery for the affected Gulf Coast states: Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. The environmental and economic injuries caused by the spill were extensive. The legal aftermath of the spill will require the parties responsible to pay substantial damages to address these injuries. Through the RESTORE Act, Congress allocated 80 percent of the administrative and civil penalties related to the spill to the states and the federal government to restore and revitalize the Gulf Coast. A portion of the RESTORE Act allocation comes directly to Texas.
The City of Port Lavaca is applying to Restore the Texas Coast for funding of four intertwined projects. A Task Force of Citizens and experts have identified these projects as needed and viable for funding. Please review the document below and make any comments here or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
