October 25, 2017 - Gov. Nathan Deal today announced the transfer of $4 million from the Governor’s Emergency Fund to the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency to fund critical and urgent restoration needs on Jekyll Island.

“Due to Hurricanes Matthew and Irma, there is an immediate need for the rehabilitation of the rock revetment and restoration of armament on the north portion of Jekyll Island,” said Gov. Deal. “I’ve allocated $4 million to cover these immediate needs and will seek supplemental funding in the amended budget to assist other beachfront areas impacted by hurricane-related erosion.”
