WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) announced he secured $59,795,000 for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to go towards a multitude of navigation projects and multi-purpose flood risk management projects in Eastern North Carolina. These funds will come from the bipartisan infrastructure package supported by Senator Tillis.

“I was proud to work with my colleagues to craft and pass the bipartisan infrastructure package. This long-overdue legislation is already delivering millions for targeted infrastructure needs in North Carolina,” said Senator Tillis. “These funds will allow the Army Corps of Engineers to deepen waterways on North Carolina’s coast so we can ensure safe navigation and be better prepared for future storms.”
