In 2013 the National Park Service awarded more than $7.6 million to eight East Coast states to help stabilize or repair historic properties damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Maryland received $1.47 million, of which $909,250 was awarded through a competitive sub-grant application process that concluded earlier this year. Hurricane Sandy, which hit the East Coast in October of 2012, brought high winds, heavy rain, snow, and flooding to Maryland.
In addition to the sub-grants, the federal funds will be directed toward disaster relief and resiliency
planning, conducting survey activities, and developing a Cultural Resource Hazard Mitigation Program within the
Maryland Historical Trust.
