NEW ORLEANS - U.S. Sen. Mary L. Landrieu says $6 million in disaster recovery grants related to Hurricanes Isaac and Katrina are heading to Louisiana.

Landrieu says the funds are provided through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Public Assistance Program.

Landrieu said Wednesday that $3.7 million will go to the state Department of Agriculture and Forestry for emergency protective measures and fuel distribution as a result of Isaac.

Another $1.2 million goes to St. John the Baptist Parish School Board to cover temporary transportation of students to alternate schools after Isaac.

Finally, $1.1 million will go to the state Department of Health and Hospitals for costs generated after Women's Hospital in Baton Rouge sheltered and provided care to survivors of Katrina.
