Holden Beach to receive nearly $6 million disaster grant

HOLDEN BEACH, NC (WWAY) —  The Town of Holden Beach says FEMA has approved a $5.99 million disaster grant to repair beach strand damages caused by Hurricane Matthew.

In a newsletter, the town says they are sorting through the details to determine what this approval means for the Central Reach Project.

This $15 million project called the Central Reach Project is designed to take sand from the ocean floor and pump it onto shore.

The town says at the very least, they anticipate being able to use the current dredges onsite to replace the 131,000 cubic yards of sand lost to Matthew, along with recouping area vegetation, a sand fence and engineering costs.
