$586K modification study for Tinian Harbor set to begin

(Office of the Governor) — With the official receipt of grant funding from the Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment or OEA, the modification study, which assesses environmental impacts and creates a feasibility of navigational features for the Tinian Harbor, will continue to move forward.

According to the administrator for the Office of Grants Management and State Clearinghouse, Epi Cabrera, last month, “the OEA notified the CNMI of the award and we worked expeditiously to submit the required financial documents for the immediate disbursement of funds,” he said.

Through a grant co-authored by the Office of the Governor and the CNMI Civil Military Liaison Office, in partnership with the CNMI Office of Grants Management & State Clearinghouse, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can move forward with the study.

Cabrera added that the funding will go a long way in ensuring the completion of the Tinian Harbor study.

“Earlier this month, we noted the importance of this improvement to our infrastructure and to the Tinian community. I thank the Department of Finance and Division of Treasury for assisting with the wire transfer to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and we extend our appreciation to OEA, the Harbor Task Force and the Office of the Governor,” he said.

The Tinian Harbor will undergo a series of environmental, economic, and structural analyses by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to determine the best possible options to improve harbor navigational features.
