Requesting Your Support

beach erosion

Beach erosion has always been a part of life “down the shore,” but the strength and frequency of today’s storms means that we must be more vigilant than ever in protecting our town, our economy, and our way of life. Harvey Cedars is due for its seven-year beach renourishment project, starting in 2023. Today, we're asking for your help to gain the federal funds needed for this vital project. Please email a letter of support to our U.S. Senators and Representatives, asking them to vote for $32 million in federal funding in the fiscal year 2023 for beach renourishment.

    As a resident of Harvey Cedars, New Jersey, I am writing to you to express my concern and ask for your support. The beaches in Harvey Cedars are completely eroded to the point where they not only prevent residents and visitors from utilizing the Jersey shore, they present a clear danger to houses, the community, tourism, and the local economy.

    Harvey Cedars is due for its 7-year renourishment project in 2023. I ask that you please support the federal funding for beach renourishment in the FY23 cycle in the amount of $32 million.
