Jefferson and Plaquemines parishes will split more than $2.4 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to repair buildings that were damaged during Hurricane Isaac in August 2012, the agency said Monday.
More than $1.2 million will cover repairs to various Jefferson Parish Department of Water facilities and will finance measures to protect against future damage, FEMA said in a news release.
