Gov. Bryant Announces Treasury’s Award of RESTORE Projects

Gov. Phil Bryant announced yesterday that the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) has issued grant awards for six Mississippi RESTORE projects.

“This is good news as we continue to propose and implement projects to support the economic and natural resource recovery of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the entire Gulf region resulting from the oil spill,” Gov. Bryant said. “I had the opportunity to meet with Secretary Steven Mnuchin in May to discuss Mississippi’s priorities. The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality and Treasury have, and will continue to work together, to improve the processes which will result in additional awards in the imminent future.”
