Texas is grateful that the NFWF Announced $26.5 Million Award to Restore 17 miles of Shoreline at McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge

Award will help construct critical beach and dune landscape to protect Texas’s largest expanse of coastal wetlands, as well as coastal communities and infrastructure in Jefferson County. The grant was awarded through the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund, which NFWF created in accordance with the terms of criminal settlement agreements between DOJ and BP and Transocean. The agreements directed a total of $2.544 billion to NFWF to fund projects benefiting the natural resources of the Gulf Coast that were impacted by the spill. Of these funds, more than $200 million are allocated for natural resource projects in Texas.
