Washington D.C. (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is awarding $480 million dollars to rebuild the Rockaway Boardwalk in New York that was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The reconstruction effort will begin once the state and city officials finish finalizing the paperwork and hiring government contracts to assist in the relief efforts. The $480 million will be devoted to rebuilding the boardwalk, outfitting it with showers, creating better electrical infrastructure, and putting in more benches and stairs. The boardwalk will also be more resilient to floods and heavy perception. Large sand barriers will also be constructed to act as the first line of defense against any future coastal floods. US Federal Contractor Registration is encouraging businesses to become properly registered in System for Award Management and become an official FEMA Contractor to help FEMA. Contractors can win millions of dollars in federal contractors if their business is chosen to help in the rebuilding process of Rockaway Boardwalk.
U.S. Senator Charles Schumer stated, “ It is great news that FEMA has green-lighted this massive federal grant financed by the Sandy relief bill that we all worked so hard to pass for repairs and resiliency work to the Rockaway boardwalk. Federal sign-off is a significant step toward funding an accessible, pedestrian-friendly, and storm-resistant boardwalk, as well as related resiliency efforts to protect the many families who live nearby from future storms. We will make sure that nothing in this effort impacts other ongoing storm-mitigation measures to better protect the whole Rockaway Peninsula.”
