The aim of this new funding program, administered by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, is to help the Jersey Shore's tourism industry stay vibrant through investing in things like storm resiliency and long-lasting infrastructure.

"So many of us have created memories with family and friends at the boardwalks of the Jersey shore. Our boardwalks have long been a prized destination and we want to keep them that way by helping shore communities repair and maintain these wooden main streets,” Gov. Phil Murphy said in a news release. “We look forward to all the vital projects that will result from our Boardwalk Preservation Fund investments. The grant awards announced today are a meaningful step in preserving the health and dynamism of these special places.”

The towns with the largest pieces of the pie, each receiving $20 million, are Atlantic City and Asbury Park.

Projects that are planned with the funds include replacing old, crumbling portions of the boardwalk, adding ADA-compliant ramps and railings, expanding existing boardwalk sections and even offering businesses grants to complete upgrades in line with boardwalk construction.

The funding comes from federal American Rescue Plan Coronavirus State & Local Fiscal Recovery Funds.

In addition to 12 beach towns farther north, the following Cape May County towns are the Boardwalk Preservation Fund grant recipients:

  • Cape May City - $6,722,552
