Gloucester Times: The town of Rockport, MA, will receive significant federal assistance in financing the nearly completed $4.5 million rebuilding of its breakwaters, thanks to the intervention of U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton and a $1.2 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Moulton’s office announced the grant Monday [June 27]. It will reimburse the town for the repair and redesign of both the Pigeon Cove breakwater and the harbor entrance breakwaters. Both have been damaged in the past by severe winter storms, particularly in 2010 and 2013.
