Hurricane Sandy Monitoring and Evaluation

Between 2013 and 2016, the Hurricane Sandy Program, administered through both the Department of Interior (DOI) and NFWF, invested more than $302 million to support 160 projects designed to improve the resilience of ecosystems and communities to coastal storms and sea level rise. DOI and NFWF commissioned Abt Associates to conduct an initial external evaluation of the 160 projects. The evaluation includes a main report as well as six in-depth case studies, each of which is focused on understanding the impacts and effectiveness of projects within a specific activity category.
