 Harbor Coalition Superstorm Sandy

Restoration Project Maps & Info

The NY-NJ Harbor Coalition played an active role through its national and regional members to help secure passage of the full, fair $60 billion in federal rebuilding and recovery funding. The Coalition is now working with its members, partners and fellow advocates to ensure that as federal officials allocate this funding they consider projects that provide environmental, public access, local jobs and other community benefits -- while also reducing flood risk along our urban coastline.

Specifically, the Coalition is advocating for 28 specific projects -- some at multiple sites -- that members believe are priority examples of the kind of work that deserves consideration for Sandy funding. The maps below (interactive and printable versions) highlight these projects and indicate their relation to the storm surge caused by Sandy when it hit our shores on Oct. 29, 2012.

 Additional information on Coalition's project requests, federal allocations to date, and other announcements related to the Sandy funding can be found through the documents directly below.

    • Red dots = US Army Corps of Engineers requests
    • Orange dots = Department of Interior requests
    • Purple dots = Environmental Protection Agency requests
    • Yellow dots = Department of Housing and Urban Development requests
    • Light pink dots = US Army Corps of Engineers requests (Feasibility Study phase)
    • Teal green areas = wetlands
    • Aqua areas = FEMA Sandy final storm surge on land
    • Darker blue areas = FEMA Sandy final storm surge in water/wetlands
