Federal dollars from FEMA will repair Lane’s Cove Breakwater
Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) announced that the City of Gloucester has received $1,017,146.25 in federal funding to make critical infrastructure improvements. The funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will repair Lane’s Cove Breakwater, an area damaged from severe winter storms in 2015.
“These federal dollars will allow Gloucester to make critical repairs to the areas destroyed by severe winter storms,” said Congressman Seth Moulton. “This is the type of investment in our infrastructure that our communities need and deserve, and making improvements now will have a real impact on our efforts to revitalize our communities and strengthen our regional economy.”
“It is good news that this federal assistance has finally made its way to Gloucester and is available to offset some of the costs from this devastating storm. Massachusetts communities rely on this kind of FEMA assistance to respond to emergencies, and I will continue to fight for federal funding to be available to deal with future disasters,” said Senator Edward J. Markey.
“We are grateful that the city has received the necessary funds for the critical needs at Lane’s Cove Seawall,” said Mayor of Gloucester, Sefatia Romeo Theken. “Our city needs help from our state and federal partners to ensure we have safe infrastructures, and this shows we are continuing to fight for results.”
