NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The federal government is sending $233.8 million in grants to Louisiana to relocate a coastal American-Indian village, prevent damage from hurricanes and make a suburban slice of New Orleans better at handling storm waters.
    
The funds are part of a $1 billion package the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Thursday to make the nation more resilient in the face of disasters.
    
HUD is spending $48.3 million to help Isle de Jean Charles rebuild its village behind levees in Terrebonne Parish.
    
HUD also is giving New Orleans $141.2 million to help a large area known as Gentilly fulfill the city's goal of better handling storm water.
    
The rest of the money is going into a state program to help residents along the coast avoid flooding.
