MOBILE, AL – Alabama coastal residents are expected to receive more than $1.5 million from grants that were awarded to 13 area agencies and groups by The Community Foundation of South Alabama to help the residents recover from the 2010 Gulf oil spill.

The Birmingham Business Journal reports that the grants were made possible by the Fund for Gulf Communities, a program of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors created by an anonymous donation to the Rockefeller group to help those most affected by the oil spill.

According to the Press-Register, Alvertha Penny, president of The Community Foundation of South Alabama, said more than $3.6 million has been distributed since July to bolster financial, physical and emotional health.
