Camden County Resiliency Funding to Combat Sea Level Rise Secured

Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) secured $1.24 million for the Camden County Resiliency Center to combat sea level rise along Georgia’s coast as part of the Fiscal Year 2024 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.

This funding will support the center’s work to protect, restore, and responsibly develop Camden County. In partnership with College of Coastal Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Georgia, the center will engage, educate, and monitor Georgia’s coastal environment. It will also champion smart development that provides economic opportunity while mitigating hazards and adapting to a changing environment.

“The Camden County Resiliency Center does important work to make sure our communities can meet the challenges of our changing environment. Through community engagement, education, and recovery efforts, the center will help coastal Georgians stay prepared for sea level rise, erosion, and other coastal challenges, ensuring that we can enjoy our beautiful coast for generations to come,” said Rep. Carter.

“Thank you, Congressman Carter, for funding our Camden County Resiliency Center. As part of the 2024 fiscal spending bill, this grant is truly a game-changer for our community. It's not only about buildings and budgets; it's about people. With this specialized facility, we're not just constructing a building; we're building resilience. This funding will help provide a unified hub for addressing community needs and engagement, especially during emergencies. Thank you for your invaluable support and advocacy,” said Ben Casey, Camden County District 5 Commissioner.
