NEW ORLEANS - A conservation agency has announced more than $99 million in projects funded through a settlement resulting from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill - including more than $13 million for restoration work on Louisiana's coast.

The National Fish and Wildlife Federation announced the latest projects Monday. It marks the second round of grants from a program funded as a result of plea agreements between the U.S. Justice Department, BP and Transocean.

Alabama is receiving $9.6 million of the latest grants; Mississippi is getting $28.8 million for three projects; Texas, $13 million; and Florida, more than $34 million.
