Rhode Island is getting another $6 million in federal funds for relief projects related to Superstorm Sandy and future storm preparation.
U.S. Sen. Jack Reed announced the funding from the U.S. Interior Department on Thursday.
Reed's office says the funds can be used for projects ranging from restoring marshes and beaches to researching the impact of storm surges. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will work with agencies including the state Department of Environmental Management and Coastal Resources Management Council.
Nonprofit groups including Save the Bay, The Nature Conservancy, Ducks Unlimited, the Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association and others will also be involved.
Reed says Rhode Island has gotten more than $45 million in federal Sandy relief so far.
